We are delighted to announce a School of Education Guilt Free Book Club for Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators. This book club is for current students, faculty, mentors, and alumni who want to join together in a nurturing community to focus on supporting one another.The book is described as an “actionable framework that gives you concrete steps toward rediscovering yourself, your energy, and your passion for teaching. You’ll learn how a simple shift in mindset can affect your outlook, and how taking care of yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally is one of the most important things you can do.”

What does Guilt Free mean?
