"This updated and expanded second edition of The Mindful
Teacher presents a truly inspiring vision of educational
change. It is essential reading for all who agree that it is time
to spark a quiet revolution of learning in which teachers and their
students can truly flourish." -Michael Schratz, president of the
International Congress of School Effectiveness and Improvement
"When reforms in some education systems result in alienated teaching rather than improved learning, it takes a book like The Mindful Teacher to remind all that education has deeper meaning and substance than merely achieving performance indicators. This book has a very important message for all educators!" -Pak Tee Ng, National Institute of Education, Singapore, author of Educational Change in Singapore: Drawing Strengths from Paradoxes
