What if teachers learn to take care of themselves while taking
care of their students? In Take Time for
Yourself: Self-Care Action Plans for Educators
, author Tina H. Boogren
contends that the key to thriving, as both a human and an educator, rests in
daily self-care. By working through Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs – (1)
physiological, (2) safety, (3) belonging, (4) esteem, (5) self-actualisation
and (6) transcendence – F–12 teachers and leaders will see a clear
science-based path to overall wellbeing. This guide promises to be a source of
inspiration long after its first read.

With this book, readers will:

  • understand how Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
    comes into play in their personal and professional lives

  • be equipped with doable strategies for
    their various needs and, finally, transcend and connect to something greater
    than themselves

  • take surveys and perform a daily time
    audit to determine how well they are meeting each need

  • design their own action plans to meet
    their different physical, emotional and psychological needs

  • journal and reflect on their self-care
    implementation efforts.
