All humans encounter challenges in life; teachers are no different. Sometimes these trials knock the wind right out of us and cause us to fall into despair. Occasionally, these setbacks, if educators pay attention, can offer new insights into ways to rebound from stressful life events.

Teacher Confidential: Personal Stories of Stress, Self-Care, and Resilience tells the stories of seven educators who have fallen, but have learned critical life lessons. They share these messages in this compilation of nonfiction essays in the voices of PreK-16 educators. It relates the personal experiences of teachers and their steps toward healing and self-care. The educators embrace vulnerability and share on topics such as: the death of a spouse, workplace bullying, the failed induction of a first-year passionate teacher, domestic abuse that ends in divorce, job dissatisfaction that transforms to joy, finding gratitude for teaching in the face of a cancer diagnosis, the road to weight loss and healthy living, and coming out as a gay educator.

Authentic, courageous, and cathartic, these accounts of humanity and strength encourage other teachers to reflect more deeply on their own lives outside of the classroom. Teacher Confidential: Personal Stories of Stress, Self-Care, and Resilience offers a clearer understanding of what happens to teachers after the school bell rings, and it underscores teachers’ ability to become resilient and remain in the profession to better serve learners.
