Pouring from a Cracked and Leaking Cup

"No one better understands or cares about the needs of a teacher like another teacher." ~ pg. 13 

Jacqueline Dunlap, retired teacher of 25 years of experience, shares her testimony in Pouring from a Cracked and Leaking Cup. She brings awareness to the physical, mental and emotional wellness of teachers in a way that no other teacher has done. She knows firsthand how overwhelming teaching can be and how best to navigate its demands. Through meaningful chapters, supporting scriptures and practical strategies, Dunlap discusses her own spiritual journey to wellness and words of encouragement.

Readers will appreciate Dunlap's transparency. She shares personal and professional moments as well as select journal entries, giving us a glimpse of her career and thoughts over the years. Each insightful chapter ends with "Food for Thought" and "Reflection" sections (with note space in paperback edition) so that readers can begin their own journey. Have a pen, highlighter, notebook and Bible ready!

I recommend Pouring from a Cracked and Leaking Cup for all educators and professionals. With this debut, the author addresses the trials and tribulations of a "new" teacher up to the present age of teaching during the pandemic. This book will not only let educators know you aren't alone but also help other professionals. I have already started to implement tools to help prevent burnout and maintain a healthy work-life balance. This is more than a book. It is more than one teacher's experience. It is a must-have resource!
