This inspiring resource presents the concept of a heartprint—the distinctive impression that an educator’s heart leaves on students and colleagues during his or her professional career. The author writes in a conversational, humorous manner as he offers his own anecdotes and reflections to help readers uncover their professional impact and foster productive, heart-centered classrooms and schools.

Part 1 addresses “Happiness”—having passion, purpose, and a positive impact in education. In part 2, “Engagements,” readers explore the engagement teachers must have in their work to put forth the needed energy and effort. Part 3, “Alliances,” asks readers to be open to forming alliances with their fellow educators so they can collaborate effectively. Next, part 4, “Risk Taking,” demonstrates for readers why teachers should engage in vision-focused risk taking to create sustainable change in their schools. Finally, part 5, “Thought,” focuses on the knowledge capacity educators should have to fulfill the heart of the teaching profession.


  • Examine five unique HEART aspects of your professional life: Happiness, Engagement, Alliances, Risk, and Thought.
