How is This Book Useful to You and Your Students?
As a high school teacher of over 20 years, I have learned that the hardest students to reach are the ones who need it the most. Students come to us for so much more than our curriculum. As teachers, we want them to grow into confident, independent and wonderful citizens. If you are like me, you look out on the students in your classes and you see potential, even if they don’t see it in themselves.
So often teens go though self-defeating periods and create a great deal of pain for themselves and others.
If our young adults understood their own self worth and the worth of all others, it would dramatically change their thoughts and actions to reflect a positive and fulfilling future.
The chapters of this book revolve around the central theme of self-esteem as it deals with tough issues like drugs and alcohol, healthy relationships, stress and coping strategies, family, friends and school.
Each individual chapter supplements the topics you are already discussing with your classes.
