Reignite the Flames, the follow-up book to The Fire Within, expands on the concepts of:
Educator engagement and disengagement
The connection between disengagement and mental health issues like burnout, secondary traumatic stress, and demoralization
The impact of stress and trauma on our brains and bodies
And strategies for self-care and re-engagement
There is no denying the challenge of being an educator, but there are opportunities to re-engage and be happy. Reignite the Flames provides the vocabulary and the roadmap to help.
