“Jeremy Adams has written the book that will help us all return to the magic that lives inside our classrooms and our schools. Through the five concentric circles of pivotal teacher relationships, Adams provides actionable and meaningful steps to help readers remember their why while gracefully riding the wave of our educational world.”

Tina H. Boogren, author and educational consultant

“In Riding the Wave, author Jeremy Adams brings a compassionate lens to the role educators must play while navigating the constant change and added responsibilities found in our 21st century schools. He perceptively connects how building appreciative and supportive relationships in the school setting is critical to anchoring our well-being and sustaining joy and enthusiasm for our work. Riding the Wave helps us walk a mile in another’s shoes to reconsider the importance of empathy and understanding in our work relationships, which can sometimes get lost in the turmoil that accompanies educational change and reform. This book offers timely and important advice for any school educator trying to ride the wave of educational change with grace and dignity.”

Robin Noble, author and educational consultant

Riding the Wave is a must-read for all teachers seeking to flourish in the midst of juggling increasing demands and the struggle to meet the needs of students in an ever-changing world. It puts into words what teachers experience at the deepest levels, explaining with honesty and respect how and why emotional exhaustion, burnout, and low morale plague even the most dedicated teachers and schools.”
