Recommended Reading – Things of Value

Many students think that their teachers know everything.

The truth is that we have our own resources to help us stay one step ahead. That’s true in life as much as it is in the classroom. Life is a classroom, after all.

I find that throughout the week as I browse the internet, and read books and blogs, I often come across resources that make me stop and take note.

They cause me to think, or rethink.  I’m stretched beyond my comfort zone. My heart grows three sizes. I feel understood. I’m encouraged. I’m given a sense of hope. These are life-giving moments throughout my week.   

And the tell of a true teacher is one who must share what she has learned in hopes that her students will get it too.

So today, I’d like to share some recommended reading.
