Janice Scott Cover, EdD has been a teacher for over 40 years serving people of all ages, in various settings and from diverse backgrounds. She is familiar with the complexities of the profession and knows that the continual challenges and increasing responsibilities of teachers can be overwhelming. Her knowledge and familiarity about the teaching profession inspired her to provide a supportive and empowering tool to help her colleagues overcome obstacles and enjoy their chosen vocation through her book, “Teachers are Burdened: Proven Tips to Lighten the Load and Win” (published by Archway Publishing).

Cover empathizes with her colleagues as she also endured hardships throughout her teaching journey. However, she developed success strategies that helped to build her career and improved her life. In this book, she shares what she has been learning and assures her fellow educators that they too can achieve personal and professional success for themselves and students in their charge that will inevitably leave an eternal impact. In addition, this book also serves as a teaching tool. The “Teachers’ Corner” at the end of each chapter pose questions and ideas for discussion and reflection to bring about necessary change. Each chapter also concludes with “Digging In” activities to help in organizing, developing and implementing winning strategies.

“Each year, scores of teachers leave the profession citing undue stress. Filling vacant teacher positions is an ongoing struggle for school districts and principals, which could have dire consequences for the continued education of learners. A look at the big picture is having less qualified people in the workforce. This book helps to raise awareness and understanding of some issues teachers encounter as they work tirelessly to educate each child in diverse classrooms,” Cover says. “I have proven and believe that a relaxed and competent teacher creates a relaxed and productive classroom of future leaders. Additionally, everyone strives for personal growth and development. To that end, each chapter in this book is relevant to anyone seeking self-improvement.”

“Teachers are Burdened: Proven Tips to Lighten the Load and Win” validates proven strategies, supported by triumphs over challenges from Cover’s personal and professional experiences.
