A POSITIVE LIFE Publication by Dr. James F. Hubbard


Stress Control For Teachers

Is A Free Gift From The Hubbard Family
And Is Dedicated To Wife, Mother, and Teacher

Ellen Collins Hubbard
(October 1, 1923 - December 10, 2004)


Ellen Hubbard graduated from Madison College (now James Madison University) in Virginia. Her first teaching assignment was at Ginter Park Elementary School in Richmond, VA.

When the family moved to Laurinburg, NC, she began teaching a third grade class at Covington Street School. In addition she offered private tutoring and art lessons.

Over the years Ellen developed a stress related illness which forced her to resign from teaching on disability. Her husband, James F. Hubbard, a professor of psychology, wrote this booklet with the hope that other teachers would not develop stress related disabilities while doing the important job of teaching the children we love.

When I was a small child my Mom often read to me the story of “The Little Engine That Could” with the memorable message, “I think I can, I think I can.”

I still remember that message.
