About The Book
Today’s teachers face incredible challenges as they’re asked to do more with less. With above-and-beyond responsibilities that include advocacy, counseling, and crisis control, teachers are being recognized as some of the most indispensable workers in our society.
Award-winning educator and prize-winning poet Peter Mishler frames the most impactful experiences from his teaching life as straightforward, candid stories and reflections in his new book For All You Do: Self-Care and Encouragement for Teachers.
Deeply personal and strikingly emotional, For All You Do is much more than a gift book for a favorite teacher—it is self-care, affirmations, practical wisdom, and a reassuring tribute to society’s most important role models.

Raves and Reviews
Peter Mishler is that rare combination of the real deal: an accomplished published poet and a committed veteran teacher. In For All You Do, he explores the topic of self-care for teachers—both the need to take it seriously and the need to resist some of its mythologies—in vivid, compelling prose. He offers a vision of teaching as an art form, but it’s performance art he’s modeling, messy, interactive, and dynamic, not the creation of static artifacts with the brushstrokes smoothed out. He’s the kind and genuine mentor every new teacher should have, the self-aware and generous senior colleague we all want to become. When you finish reading this book, I predict you’ll feel reassured about your ability to navigate what Mishler calls the “noble and necessary challenge” of work in schools—and better equipped to do so in healthy, sustainable ways.
