Teacher: Seeking The Vocational Archetype by Robert Mitchell
"Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives." – Andy Rooney, the late commentator on CBS' "60 Minutes"
Author Robert Mitchell shares his insights about the role of the teacher in Teacher: Seeking the Vocational Archetype. His book reveals both engagement and reflection in seeking that archetype. He believes many teachers have lost touch with the archetypal characteristics of their personalities and must therefore seek the vocational archetype on their own, through trial and error. Among his book's accolades:
"Teacher is a must-read for anyone who loses sleep over what is wrong with American education and what to do about it." – Dr. Clifford Mayes, Professor of Educational Psychology, and author of Archetype, Culture, and the Individual in Education: The Three Pedagogical Narratives
"Mitchell advances integrative insights with profound respect for those who take on the archetypal vocation of teaching. Anyone who reads this masterwork may sense, with Mitchell, the seriousness and urgency of educational responsibility – as well as the possibilities for humankind, if we teach to cultivate soulfulness in ourselves and our children. It can be done." – John Dotson, President, Monterey Friends of C.G. Jung
Mitchell states the teacher-student relationship in the autonomy of the classroom inspires the mind and nurtures the character of the soul. His book will inspire, encourage, and empower teachers seeking the vocational archetype in themselves, while giving voice to the vocational archetype in school communities and in society.
About the Author: Robert Mitchell retired after 27 years as a secondary classroom teacher in multiple subjects at both public and private schools. He now writes, lectures, and gives workshops on education, child development, and democracy. This book precedes a second book on the K-12 curriculum.
"It has been said that a good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. This book will help teachers reach those lofty goals," said Lynn Eddy, VP of Acquisitions, Strategic Book Publishing.
