It is not often you get to add a new title to your life, “author” was not something I had ever dreamed I would be able to add. Sure, I come from a line of authors, but me? Write a book? Yeah right. Yet I did, and it found a home with Powerful Learning Press, and now it is almost ready for the world to read. In fact, I sent it out for review to a few people this week – gulp!
On May 14th, my first book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classroom Back to Our Students” will be released as an e-book. This book is my heart. It chronicles my journey from a traditional teacher to whatever it is I am now. But it is not just about my journey, it is about giving the classroom back to all students. It is about ideas, little ones and big ones, that anyone at any point in their teaching journey can implement. It is about ease not about creating more work. But most importantly it is about passionate learners and how we can re-engage our students by giving the classroom back to them.
I hope you will consider reading it. Here is a link to pre-buy it before the release date.

And did I mention the foreword is by the amazing Diana Laufenberg, a person I so admire. The book is so much better because of her.
