It wasn't long after being named North Carolina History Teacher of the Year that Justin Ashley started noticing signs of burnout. He knew he needed to make some radical changes in how he handled his work and personal life. In The Balanced Teacher Path, Justin shares his personal story-illuminating how easy it is to give your job everything you've got and leave yourself with nothing outside of school-and shows new teachers and veterans alike the self-care techniques they can employ to create work-life balance and prevent burnout. With equal parts humor and wisdom, Justin analyzes four key aspects of every teacher's life-career, social, physical/emotional, and financial-and offers practical advice to bring these areas into sync, reigniting a passion for teaching in the process. For educators of grades K to 8.
