Angie lands in rural Alaska for her first teaching job, expecting adventure and a chance to change the world. The reality of her new life leaves her disillusioned and miserable. There's the toilet in her living room, it costs $60 to ship a bottle of lime juice, and she has to keep her students inside due to polar bear warnings.
If you've ever found yourself in an unfamiliar setting, you will relate to the trepidation and awkwardness that Angie experiences on her journey. With examples from her life in Alaska (like the time she accidentally danced like a man or when she wore springtime boots in the fall), Angie introduces strategies to help other teachers rise to the challenges of living and teaching in new places. The Transplant Teacher will help you:
•Examine your expectations
•Reframe your thoughts
•Focus on what you can control
•Make connections a little at a time
•Push past the uncomfortable to get to the good stuff
Transplant Teachers in new environments need guidance, support, and openhearted straight talk. This book provides all three and helps teachers through the surprisingly simple process of looking inward and reaching outward so they can thrive in the classroom and beyond.
