Educational professionals from the Huntsville, Alabama area came together in a summer retreat to discuss ways to balance frustrations in our schools, families, and communities. We figured that everyone uses the restroom throughout the day, so this symbolic act of flushing away toxic wastes from our bodies is pivotal for establishing healthy relationships inside and outside the school or workforce. Enjoy this wellness book composed by ten teachers (aka “Coaches”) from the Huntsville, Alabama area—we hope it helps YOU to be able to FLUSH away those problems holding you back so that you can GO WITH THE FLOW.
There is a preview of this book available (PDF file will open in a new window).
