The Stoic Educator: Strategies for Teacher Well-Being and Mastering Challenges with Grace

Emir Cruz Fernández

Stoic wisdom has become popular for helping us focus on what we can and can't control in life. But how can Stoic philosophies help you in your specific role as a teacher?

Emir Cruz Fernández has the answers in this useful new book. Drawing on the insights of Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, Seneca and other great philosophers, he shows how Stoic wisdom and the four Stoic virtues can help you improve classroom management, handle difficult or toxic colleagues, overcome imposter syndrome, master your sphere of influence, control reactions, thrive in the face of adversity, develop resilience, and more.

Many of the challenges in the education world feel overwhelming and out of our control, but with Stoic philosophies, we can take control of the narrative and free ourselves from the things we cannot change--only focusing on the ones we can. With wisdom, courage, and perseverance, join Emir on the journey to finding a more fulfilling path in your career.
