Students and children need a better education system that focuses on teaching them not only how to be excellent as individuals but how to be kinder collaborators within society.
HAWI, Hawaii (PRWEB) November 24, 2021
As an educator for over 20 years in both the public and private sector, Amy Grimes has found that educators and facilitators do not get the interpersonal, psychological, emotional, and even professional support they so desperately require to do their job well, and this was to their students’ detriment and ultimately society’s. She wants to help educators, like herself, explore their own challenges within their profession, so when they are teaching, they can offer their students the best opportunity to learn, grow and evolve.
“An Instructor’s Guide to Educating with Kindness and Leading with Love” (published by Balboa Press) is both a philosophy text and personal workbook for anyone who identifies themselves as a teacher, educator, facilitator, caregiver, or parent who wants support in sustaining, maintaining, or improving their teaching practice. Its kindness and love based mindfulness approach to sustainable teaching focuses on exploring and resolving the limitations they have about teaching and learning to support students, and themselves, in the long-term. Written to open one’s teaching potential through self-reflection, mindfulness, some teaching stories, breath exercises, and kindness practices, this workbook and its exercises are for in person and remote teaching environments.
“Students and children need a better education system that focuses on teaching them not only how to be excellent as individuals but how to be kinder collaborators within society. This approach brought forth in this book offers educators the opportunity to revolutionize how they approach their students in and out of the classroom, by giving their students the opportunity to truly be empowered in their learning experience, simultaneously giving educators the chance to examine and heal their past traumas about learning and teaching that may be insidiously influencing the way they educate,” Grimes says.
When asked what she wants readers to take away from the book, Grimes answers, “I want readers to feel empowered as educators, caregivers, facilitators, and leaders, to view their students as amazing people, who are capable of curiosity, inquisitive thinking, and being responsible for their own learning process. I would also like readers to feel empowered by the exercises to resolve past trauma and limiting experiences that negatively influence their abilities as educators.” For more details about the book, please visit https://www.balboapress.com/en/bookstore/bookdetails/831535-an-instructors-guide-to-educating-with-kindness-and-leading-with-love
