Berit Gordon offers a DIY approach to professional development, outlining a simple but effective framework to help teachers develop a sense of personal agency and take on their own professional learning in a deeply reflective way. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to improving. The Joyful Teacher provides explicit strategies you can dip into as needed, but the goals—and chapters—are ordered so that each focus area builds on the ones before it, helping you nurture your long-term professional growth.
