About the author

The book opens with an anecdote that teachers should read every day before class. Sometimes our impact occurs outside of our view. We don’t get to see the benefit. So much of what feeds our souls in the dark times is what we can see, hear and touch in our own classroom. But there’s also the unknown impact, the child we thought we didn’t reach, the one who got away. In the anecdote, we are reminded that doing the work with our students is always the right thing, and this can make a difference in a child’s life even though we may never know it. This can sustain us. This can keep us going when we want to give up.
The heart of the book is Chapter Five: Teaching and Integrating the HEART in Mind Model. Ms Martinez defines each part of the HEART acronym (Honor Your Emotions, Elect Your Responses, Apply Empathy, Reignite Your Relationships, Transform with Purpose), and details the key concepts for each skill. Many concrete examples are offered, which is really refreshing, bringing the theoretical very much into the practical realm.
One section I know I will return to over and over are the Indicators of Mastery for grade level bands, which follow the definition and key concepts of each skill. It seems to me this would be very useful for institutions developing a whole-school approach to social and emotional learning. I was also struck by how manageable she makes it seem. The grade level indicators look more realistic and achievable when read against the framework she offers for infusing SEL into every aspect of education.
An important idea Ms Martinez frequently points to is the social and emotional competence of the adults involved in education, especially in these very challenging times. I am delighted to have a book that acknowledges and addresses this critical component. Teachers and staff working within education need to ‘nurture their own well-being and learn tools to navigate the unprecedented challenges of teaching during and after a pandemic’ and know that it’s ok for them to do so. One first step I can recommend is reading this amazing book.
