In 2018, we talked with Dr. Lisa Lucas about her then-new book, Practicing Presence: Simple Self-Care Strategies for Teachers. At the time, we talked about how to work with the sometimes overwhelming level of stress that educators face. Today, that seems an even bigger challenge and Lisa’s work is even more needed than it was before, so we're revisiting Lisa's original 2018 episode.
In this episode of Teacher's Corner, we talk with Lisa about how stress has changed over the years for teachers, her own experience dealing with these feelings, and why the self-help section of the bookstore may not be the best place to begin your work. Listen to learn more.
