"I will speak to you of what I've learned and what I'm still struggling with, professionally and personally, not just as a teacher and colleague but also as a wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, friend, and concerned citizen. I want to lift you up - to nourish your heart, mind, and spirit." --Regie Routman

How do we find hope and possibility in challenging times? How do we bring our truest selves into our teaching and personal lives? In this unique, inspiring book, beloved author Regie Routman artfully blends stories and strategies to show how we can introduce more joy and gratitude in our classrooms and in our lives.

Regie invites us to focus on what matters most in our work and in our relationships with those we hold dear. She shares ideas and practical takeaways for teaching, learning, and living:

  • Seeing and celebrating each learner's gifts and strengths
  • Creating a storytelling culture
  • Ensuring equitable opportunities for all
  • Co-creating welcoming spaces and routines
  • Developing professional knowledge
  • Championing the reading-writing connection
  • Fostering resilience and hope
  • Taking care of ourselves and our students
  • Making a worthy difference

"Here's what I know for sure," writes Regie. "Living a good life is about developing, nurturing, and sustaining caring relationships-in our teaching lives, our home lives, and in the happy intersection of both." Wherever you are on your journey, no matter what loss or hardship you may face, The Heart-Centered Teacher will offer you a refreshing chance to pause, take a breath, and reflect on how you and your students can live more compassionate, generous, and authentic lives.
