Hi. I’m on vacation,can you tell? Between the two trips to the east coast to say good-bye to my aunt and follow up with her family matters, our own vacation road trip, and just getting the projects completed like my computer/writing room, this summer is flying by me.
I have been reading a couple of great professional books this summer. Teaching with Intention by Debbie Miller is one that will be a staff read this coming school year. An easy book to read, it’s chock full of ideas and strategies to hone the art of teaching.
What I love is that even with 37 years of teaching behind me, there are points for me to consider. One of these is revisiwing my beliefs about teaching and learning. How can I refine them? How can I update to match the 21st century students? It’s great to get inside the head of one of the most masterful education leaders we currently have.
Here are some other fabulous nonfiction books:
A biography of Maria Anna Mozart at Wrapped in Foil.
