Onward Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators by Elena Aguilar
نویسنده: النا اگیلار (Elena Aguilar)
A practical framework to avoid burnout and keep great teachers teaching
Onward tackles the problem of educator stress, and provides a practical framework for taking the burnout out of teaching. Stress is part of the job, but when 70 percent of teachers quit within their first five years because the stress is making them physically and mentally ill, things have gone too far. Unsurprisingly, these effects are highest in difficult-to-fill positions such as math, science, and foreign languages, and in urban areas and secondary classrooms—places where we need our teachers to be especially motivated and engaged. This book offers a path to resiliency to help teachers weather the storms and bounce back—and work toward banishing the rain for good.
This actionable framework gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. You’ll learn how a simple shift in mindset can affect your outlook, and how taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is one of the most important things you can do. The companion workbook helps you put the framework into action, streamlining your way toward renewal and strength.
Cultivate resilience with a four-part framework based on 12 key habits
Uncover your true self, understand emotions, and use your energy where it counts
Adopt a mindful, story-telling approach to communication and community building
Keep learning, playing, and creating to create an environment of collective celebration
By cultivating resilience in schools, we help ensure that we are working in, teaching in, and leading organizations where every child thrives, and where the potential of every child is recognized and nurtured. Onward provides a step-by-step plan for reigniting that spark.

We chose this book for our professional learning group this year and I couldn’t have asked for a better book to get me thru the school year with my colleagues. This book puts you back in touch your purpose as a teacher and why you chose this profession. At the same time it also provides practical suggestions for re-thinking your daily approach with both students and colleagues. Christine Fitzgerald rated it: 5.0 from 5.0

I read this quickly to verify that it would be good for a summer-read for my staff, and now I look forward to going through it month by month. Get this for educators you know. The author shares real experiences, and these issues are so important for surviving and thriving in education. S. Myers rated it: 5.0 from 5.0
One of the most interesting, useful, and meaningful books I’ve read in some time – I laughed, cried, took notes, learned, reflected, and grew. I’m now itching to implement this learning with the many new teachers in my orbit. Already obsessed with everything Elena Aguilar does and would say this is her best work yet.
