Too often the discourse on teacher workload and wellbeing has focused on the symptoms and causes rather than the solutions. Kevin Lister's Teach Like You Imagined It reverses this by reflecting on the reasons why people join the teaching profession, why it is such an -œawesome- and exciting career, what we can control, and why all of this is so vitally important for future generations.
Drawing honestly and with humility on his extensive experience as a teacher and school leader and on his previous roles in the engineering industry, Kevin forensically analyses specific aspects of being a teacher in order to help readers -œreconnect with the teacher they imagined they would be- and manage their wellbeing and workload more effectively.
This excellent book contains a wealth of practical advice, thus providing a blueprint for teachers and school leaders to take back ownership of their professional and personal lives in the interests of the young people they serve. I wholeheartedly recommend it to teachers and school leaders.
