Description

William R. Powell and Ochan Powell's Becoming an Emotionally Intelligent Teacher guides teachers through the process of developing and enhancing their emotional intelligence in order to reap benefits in the classroom. Based on the premise that emotional intelligence can be taught and that emotionally intelligent teachers support highly effective and efficient student learning, this book provides teachers with the essential research, case studies, and practical tools for strengthening their emotional intelligence skill set. Using Daniel Goleman's five components of emotional intelligence as a framework-self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, social awareness, and relationship management-the book highlights the particular significance that each of these components holds for teachers and, ultimately, for student success in the classroom.

Author Biography

William Powell has served as an international school educator for the past 30 years in the United States, Saudi Arabia, Tanzania, Indonesia, and Malaysia. From 1991 to 1999, he served as the chief executive officer of the International School of Tanganyika in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and from 2000 to 2006, he served as headmaster of the International School of Kuala Lumpur. He is the coauthor, with his wife Ochan, of Count Me In! Developing Inclusive International Schools (2000) and Making the Difference: Differentiation in International Schools (2007), Becoming an Emotionally Intelligent Teacher (2010) and How to teach now: Five Keys to Personalized Learning in the Global Classroom (2011). Bill's most recent book is entitled The OIQ Factor: How teachers can raise the Organizational Intelligence of Schools (2013). Bill and Ochan are currently working on a project, The Next Frontier: Inclusion to support the inclusion of special needs children in international schools. They are focusing their attention on teacher professional development, school leadership and governance training and serve as consultants for Education Across Frontiers. When he is not facilitating teacher workshops or speaking at conferences, Bill can be found in the French Pyrenees where he fights (together with a handful of sheep) an annual battle with the European bramble. Ochan Kusuma-Powell is cofounder and director of Education Across Frontiers, an organization that promotes teacher education toward the development of professional learning communities. A graduate of Columbia University with a doctorate in international education development, she has more than 30 years experience in international education. Kusuma-Powell has developed and implemented inclusive special education programs in the United States, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Tanzania. She has been an outspoken advocate for children with special needs globally. Together with her husband Bill, she coauthored an OSAC publication entitled Count Me In! Developing Inclusive International Schools and Making the Difference: Differentiation in International Schools. Kusuma-Powell is also the author of Parent Advocacy in International School. She is a trainer for the Teachers Training Center and an adjunct faculty member at Lehigh University and the State University of New York at Buffalo.
