Unshakeable: 20 Ways to Enjoy Teaching Every Day...No Matter Whatby Angela Watson
Don't wait for teaching to become fun
Passion cannot be faked. Students can tell when we're just going through the motions. But how can you summon the energy to teach with passion when there are so many distractions pulling you from what really matters? And if you barely have time for taking care of yourself, how can you have anything left to give your students?
Don't wait for teaching to become fun again: plan for it! Your enthusiasm will become unshakeable as you learn how to:
-Create curriculum "bright spots" that you can't wait to teach
-Gain energy from kids instead of letting them drain you
-Uncover real meaning and purpose for every single lesson
-Incorporate playfulness and make strong connections with kids
-Stop letting test scores and evaluations define your success
-Construct a self-running classroom that frees you to teach
-Say "no" without guilt and make your "yes" really count
-Establish healthy, balanced habits for bringing work home
-Determine what matters most and let go of the rest
-Innovate and adapt to make teaching an adventure
Unshakeable is a collection of inspiring mindset shifts and practical, teacher-tested ideas for getting more satisfaction from your job. It's an approach that guides you to find your inner drive and intrinsic motivation which no one can take away. Unshakeable will help you incorporate a love of life into your teaching, and a love of teaching into your life. Learn how to tap into what makes your work inherently rewarding and enjoy teaching every day...no matter what.

This book is amazing! It has reenergized me. I was more inspired each chapter I read. Seasoned and new professionals can take something away from this book. I'm ready to take the suggestions/encouragements and hit the ground running!
