We are excited to announce Melissa Kennedy is joining the Amba Press list to publish her book, The Sustainable Teacher: Practical ways to a better balance in October 2023.
Melissa Kennedy is an education leader, teacher, workshop presenter and published author who focuses on empowering educators to create a sustainable and balanced teaching practice. Her books are for teachers, of any kind, to learn new strategies to integrate into their teaching careers. Understanding that teaching is a complex profession, often misunderstood by the community, Melissa’s Principles of Sustainable Teaching aim to facilitate change from within and help educators enhance their teaching practice.
In The Sustainable Teacher, Melissa shares practical strategies gathered from over 20 years of experience to help teachers find a better balance. Using ten key principles including intentional planning, effective time management, and collaboration, The Sustainable Teacher offers advice, empathy and real-life stories to assist educators along their teaching journey.
Teaching is a profession that includes moments of joy, fulfillment and deep engagement, but challenges and demands within the educational world can often lead to burnout. With the constantly changing educational landscape, it can be hard to avoid feelings of exhaustion and resentment.
Therefore, this book is recommended for readers who want to transform their approach to teaching through self-empowerment and growth. Teachers at all career stages will find inspiration from the advice and stories throughout the book to navigate their teaching journey with more energy, enthusiasm and resilience.
Publishing October 2023. Pre-orders via the Amba Press available now.
