About the Author:

Laura Weaver teaches courses and workshops, offers presentations, consults with schools, develops resources for educators and parents, and facilitates rites of passage programs for young people.

She supports educators to develop an authentic and intentional teaching practice and to integrate social, emotional, and academic learning into the classroom. A former English teacher, Laura cofounded and directed Bridges, an all-volunteer agency serving the needs of hungry and homeless people in the greater Philadelphia region.

Laura holds a bachelor's degree in literary writing from Trinity College and a master's degree in creative writing from the University of Colorado.

Mark Wilding creates and delivers programs that support educators to develop the intrapersonal and interpersonal capacities necessary to sustain an authentic teaching practice; engage students; support social, emotional, and academic learning outcomes; and collaborate effectively with colleagues.

As the former director of Naropa University's center for business and economics, Mark helped launch a graduate degree program in 1995. He teaches graduate courses in authentic leadership and systems thinking at Naropa. Mark has held leadership roles in government, business, nonprofit, and academic organizations.

Mark holds a bachelor's degree from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry and a master's degree from Naropa University.

Review:

"Good teaching comes in many forms. But good teaching is always engaged teaching. . . . This insightful and practical guide, grounded in the authors' long-time experience in helping teachers serve students well, is more than a good book to read. It's a great book to be lived."

--Parker J. Palmer, Author of Healing the Heart of Democracy, The Courage to Teach, and Let Your Life Speak

"An invaluable resource that offers concrete and inspiring principles and practices and helps us to focus on what matters most in teaching and learning the quality of the relationships between teachers and students."

--Linda Lantieri, Director of The Inner Resilience Program and Author of Building Emotional Intelligence

"Our traditional school has always been more teacher-centric than learner-centric. The result is emotional disengagement, diminished responsibility on the part of learners for their own learning, and learning processes compromised in effectiveness and depth. Crossing the chasm from teachers teaching to teachers as designers of learning spaces, facilitators, and co-learners is a profound step for most teachers. It requires clarity and lots of support, which is where books like The 5 Dimensions of Engaged Teaching can make a world of difference."

--Peter Senge, Cofounder of SoL Education Partnership and Coauthor of Schools That Learn

"It is time for us to recognize that any positive changes will come from us, not the greater system. This book provides a compelling road map for how we navigate the difficult terrain of this time, persevere, and create educational experiences that are meaningful to kids and to us as professionals. I am grateful for this map, and also delighted by the levels of joyful collaboration that gave rise to it."

--Margaret J. Wheatley, Author
