Overview

Stories by teachers for teachers about overcoming classroom stress Stress: we all live with it. But when the welfare and education of young people is at stake, the levels can rise precipitously. Every year an average of 10% of working teachers leave the field for reasons other than retirement. The attrition rate is especially high among new teachers. Techniques for coping with the stress of teaching are needed badly. The Pressures of Teaching is a collection of first-hand stories by teachers about the challenges of dealing with the stress often found in America’s classrooms. It is an indispensable antidote to the “burnout” that drives many talented teachers every year to leave the profession prematurely. In this wonderful collection, the advice of teachers who have gone through many stressful situations is a resource for anyone working in this demanding job. Whether dealing with stress caused by students, parents, administrators, or just classroom life, The Pressures of Teaching is here to help.

Maureen Picard Robins is currently a middle school assistant principal and is a national presenter on education topics. She has presented for the National Staff Development Council on brain-based pedagogies to maximize student achievement and on the use of data for the purposes of school improvement. She also presented for the CEL branch of the National Council of the Teachers of English. Robins has also presented to mentors and been involved with mentor training programs. She has presented to her city-wide English Assistant Principals and staff developers and is a frequently requested speaker. Robins has written essays about education and family for national outlets such as the Sunday New York Daily News, MSNBC, and Family Circle, as well as book reviews for The New York Times. She also has co-authored a book with Dr. Sidney Trubowitz, The Good Teacher Mentor, published by Teachers College Press in 2003 (of more than 5,000 copies sold, most were sold directly to teachers). The book is a memoir in two voices about a teacher's first year and her mentor's advice. Reviewers claimed the book “reads like fiction” and is destined to become a “classic of its kind.” Prior to becoming an assistant principal, Robins was a literacy staff developer with particular expertise in the teaching of writing. Robins has a Masters of Educational Administration and a Masters in English.
