“Great instructional coaches possess that rare combination of academic knowledge and the relational moxie necessary to mentor and coach into others effectively. In Coaching for Educator Wellness, Tina H. Boogren provides exceptional clarity and the reflective space for you to become an exceptional mentor and coach. As you journal about your coaching story, she carefully crafts a new dimension of coaching that is vital, yet often undervalued. As she states in the book: Educator wellness should never be an afterthought: it’s an essential aspect of our role as coaches. Enjoy this gift from a gifted mentor and coach who understands the nuances of being in your coaching shoes!”
“For years, we have discussed the importance of the whole child in the schooling process. This book champions the importance of the whole educator in improving schools. With teacher burnout on the rise and retention rates of new and veteran teachers plummeting, this book is timely and necessary as we fight to recruit, retain, and help teachers grow and thrive in our profession.”
“So many things to love about Boogren’s book. 1. She highlights the importance of educator wellness as an integral part of instructional leadership, instead of making wellness something to pursue due to the price of being a leader. I also love the reflection and journaling aspect of this book. She doesn't allow you to make this yet another passive read. She challenges us to reflect on our practice, and make commitments to do better, be better, and lead more effectively.”
