For many teachers, it’s a struggle to transition from summer vacation mode to teaching mode. The beginning of the school year is so full of things to do and can be overwhelming. Educators often make the mistake of complaining about the start of school and focus on all the negative aspects of the job.
The Teachers Lounge recently interviewed Owen Griffith about how educators might have a more thankful mindset about their jobs and life. Owen is not only a classroom teacher but also a public speaker, blog writer, and published author. His new book Gratitude: A Way of Teaching will help many discouraged teachers and how they conduct their classrooms. This valuable book will give educators solution-based methods and research-based resources to improve classroom culture, as well as enabling schools to elevate students’ engagement and academic achievement. Owen’s book is currently available at Amazon and was a Top Ten Best Seller in April, 2016
