Product Description
Most teachers enter the field of education to make a difference in children’s lives. But many end up, as author Lisa Lucas puts it, “tired, wired, and running in circles.” This leads to many new teachers abandoning the profession or to burnout among veteran teachers.
Drawing upon her own experiences, Lisa has written a book to help you more successfully manage the frustration of feeling overwhelmed. Written in an informal, conversational tone, Practicing Presence is filled with ideas, exercises, checklists, personal anecdotes, and practices you can use to reframe and establish a mindset that will enhance your focus and engagement in the classroom.
When teachers care for themselves deeply and deliberately, they are better able to care for the people that matter most in their lives—their students, friends, and families.  Practicing Presence focuses not on doing, but rather on being present in the life of the classroom. Each chapter includes self-care strategies to explore how to self-regulate, nurture self-acceptance, and promote compassion. This book will give readers the feeling of having a personal coach who provides suggestions and routines so that they not only can deal with being overwhelmed, but rise above it.  

Livestream: The Country-like Room presents Lisa Lucas on Monday, Sept. 25 - Little Village

, Lisa Lucas will attach a night that focuses on literature and its unique role in shaping homes that wonder about the mysterious and tolerate differences. In 2016, Lucas became the official director of the National Book Foundation, which presents the National Book Awards, honoring literature the way that the Oscars honor achievements in picture. Her task is promoting the visibility of the organization and the National Book Awards as a means of fostering a literature more reflective of contemporary readers. Fusing her weakness of reading with her background working for the Tribeca Film Festival, Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater and as publisher of Guernica , Lucas works to court a community of readers. Lucas’ passion for promoting reading frames how she sees her role as someone who serves as the face and instrument of reading and literature in the United States. While Lucas remains mindful of her status representing a kind of audience—young, boycott, female—that often is overlooked, she finds that her role involves expanding opportunities for individuals to see themselves as part of a community of readers... The Rural Room is an innovative educational experience that invites the community to sit in on a series of six speakers selected by Univ. of Iowa Professor Dave Gould for his honors students. Each sunset’s class features a local non-profit and a nationally renowned speaker, with time for conversation geared toward improving the Iowa Bishopric community as a whole. Source:
