You've got to read Kids Deserve It! by Todd Nesloney and Adam Welcome. These two principals (the kind a teacher would be lucky to work for) have put together a collection of 30 inspiring short chapters that will both validate and challenge. I'm fairly certain you'll find yourself repeatedly saying, "Now that's the teacher I want to be." And you'll be wishing your best teacher friends were sitting within reach so you could hand the book over at your favorite parts and say, "Read this!" (That's exactly what I did.)
This is the kind of book you want to read when school is just around the corner. Guaranteed it will rev up your teacher engine and help you find your best teaching self before the little people arrive. Because as Todd and Adam say, kids deserve it!
