    Practical Insights to being a Positive Teacher

    The Power of the Positive Teacher should be in every Christian teachers hands and every Christian school as an important aid to help teachers during the school year. I especially liked the way it was organized. Every chapter’s title started with “The Power of…. “.
I liked the way every chapter ended with Additional Resources.
For me, of particular help to every teacher, are the chapters on “The Power of Positive Self-Care and The Power of High Expectations.” After teaching for 42 years, one cannot underestimate the power of positive self-care. Filled with good suggestions, backed by Scripture, it has practical ways for self-care.
“The Power of High Expectations” made an important point in the beginning of the chapter. It begins with me. Because of my own expectations, I can then have them for my students. Some high expectations for myself included being prepared every day and never using sarcasm. All teachers benefit by having high expectations for themselves and their students.
I like the donation aspect of Jackie Matthew’s book. A portion of every book sold contributes to The Kenya School Project. While this book is written for the Christian teacher and School, the practical suggestions apply to all teachers.

    Recharge for the new year/mid-year/anytime you need a boost as an educator!!

    Such a great book! It’s an easy read; like you’re sitting with Jackie and talking with her in your living room. Jackie writes from her heart, using God’s word to make a point, along with resources from many different areas in the education field. She has given me, as a Christian educator, more tools and ideas to use in my classroom for a positive and effective year ahead. A wonderful way to recharge for a new school year!

    This book will refuel your passion to make an impact on the lives of your students.

    Such an inspiring book for educators, school leaders and community volunteers. I loved the personal stories Jackie shared about her own life experiences and her family. I could hear her words speaking God’s truth throughout the chapters. I appreciated her honesty, support and passion to encourage educators with biblical wisdom and resources. I’m glad I ordered two copies to share with my daughter’s school, this is the perfect read for teachers to feel encouraged, and to know they are valued and appreciated.

    I want to give this book to every Christian educator that I know!

    I want to give this book to every Christian educator that I know! The Power of the Positive Teacher is well-written and full of Jackie’s personal stories and bits of humor. It will be an encouragement for any believer who is called to teach.

    This book is the perfect inspiration to start out the school year! Jackie uses Biblical concepts to inspire and help you to be the best teacher you can be! It has me thinking of so many different ways that I can encourage and stand alongside my students, parents and fellow teachers. 🙂 A must read!
