Reclaiming Our Calling, by Brad Gustafson


Kids are more than numbers. You hold more than a job. Why then do so many pressures make you feel less than the hero you are? Why are so many teachers facing feelings of burnout?

Through a series of interwoven stories, this genre-busting book will empower you to do just that.

Practical solutions and pragmatic takeaways include:

  • Talk about learning that lasts in tangible terms
  • Teach on behalf of the whole learner and see strengths like never before
  • Take authentic steps toward meaningful change regardless of the role you’re in
  • Hold on to the heart, mind, and hope of this incredible calling
