Publisher Comments:

"This book is for teachers who have good days and bad --and whose bad days bring the suffering that comes only fromsomething one loves. It is for teachers who refuse to hardentheir hearts, because they love learners, learning, and theteaching life."

- Parker J. Palmer [from the Introduction]

Teachers choose their vocation for reasons of the heart, because they care deeply about their students and abouttheir subject. But the demands of teaching cause too manyeducators to lose heart. Is it possible to take heart in teaching once more so that we can continue to do what good teachers always do — give heart to our students?

In The Courage to Teach, Parker Palmer takes teachers on an inner journey toward reconnecting with their vocation and their students — and recovering their passion for one of the most difficult and important of human endeavors.

Synopsis:

To go on this journey with Parker Palmer into the uncharted territory of "the self" in teaching is not only to experience the joy of viewing teaching from a thrilling new perspective. It is also to be in the presence of a great teacher who, by sharing himself so openly and honestly, engages us in the very kind of teaching he so eloquently describes.

Synopsis:

An educator and Christian spiritualist examines the inner life of a dedicated teacher, demonstrating how this internal facet shapes one's ability to teach, and guides readers through a difficult self-exploration to help recover and enhance their vocational goals. 12,500 first printing. Tour.

Synopsis:

A moving, profound, and exhilarating journey toward discovering the true spirit of teaching
