Win A Copy of My Book “Passionate Learners”

On May 14th, a dream of mine came true, I became an author with the publication of my first book “Passionate Learners – Giving Our Classrooms Back to Our Students.”  Since then I have been excited to see readers respond to my book and how they will use it in their teaching lives.  While I have loved this book and writing it has been a very personal journey for me, what matters now is whether it will help others avoid some of the pitfalls I fell into as a teacher.  So to help spread the word and reward all the readers of my blog, we are giving away two copies of my book!  Entering is simple, just leave a comment.  I will pick two winners at random this Friday, May 30th at 10 PM.

Here are what a few people have said about the book after they read it.

I knew even before I read it that Passionate Learners: Giving Our Classrooms Back to Our Students was going to become one of my favorite education resources and something I would recommend to every teacher I know.” – Angela Watson

“I strongly suggest that every educator read this book whether they agree or not because ultimately, we are all motivated by doing what is in the best interest of children, right?”    

– Tony Sinanis

“I wish that I had read this book a year earlier as I struggled with being a change maker at my school. Although I have a broad PLN I can call on for support, somehow reading these words felt like an extended conversation with a wise friend. Thank you, Pernille, for your oh so honest story that affirms the gifts and challenges of our vital profession. “

– Joan Young

  1. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of your eBook. I have discovered that if your classroom provides the feeling of safety it will open the door to creativity. Creativity is my passion that fuels my soul, my classroom, and my life.

  2. I’ve enjoyed your blog and am excited to read your book. I also believe that there is a better way to teach – we just have to be open to learning with our students and bring learning to life for them.

  3. You had me at “giving our classrooms back to our students”! It only seems fitting to have student voice heard from all corners of our rooms! Can’t wait to read!

  4. Will add your book to my Summer Reading list. I’m a new teacher who has enjoyed learning from your twitter and blog. 1st time participating in the GlobalRead Aloud this year.

  5. I read your book the day it was released…ka mau te wehi (Maori for awesome). I began my journey to give the classroom back to my students a year ago…it has been fantastic. Your book will keep inspiring me to continue to make those small changes…next on my agenda is creating a limited homework classroom. Congratulations on your book. Kerri

  6. I think we underestimate our students’ willingness, nay, craving, for challenging learning.

  7. I agree with your quote. I particularly find that so called “difficult” kids need a more caring environment to let their guard down and teachers need to work harder to create this environment first before these children can feel safe to learn.

  8. I would love to receive a copy of your book Passionate Learners. It would be great reading for summer and a new beginning to next school year.

  9. I have enjoyed reading your blog and gotten so much inspiration for my own teaching. I look forward to reading your book. It has great reviews, congratulations!

  10. Its been a learning experience following you on Twitter. Even if I don’t win a free copy I will have to buy book! Can’t wait to learn more because as an educator we must always be learning.

  11. My goal for this summer is to rediscover my passion for teaching. This has been a difficult year, professionally and personally, so my work as I see it is to become engaged and joyful about it all again. Looking forward to learning from and with you through reading your book. Congratulations!

  12. Planned on getting this book for my summer reading list. Thank you for the chance to win it before I buy it!

  13. I heard you speak at the Google Summit in Brenham, Texas. I would love to read it and share your passion with my campus!

  14. I discovered your blog through a colleague, and I love reading it. I can’t wait to read your new book! You are such a passionate and reflective teacher! Glad to know that you are a fellow teacher in Wisconsin!

  15. I pre-ordered it and am loving your book! I am one who needs hard copy, so I printed it and took it to be bound. Now I can write all over it – and reference it midday while teaching. 🙂 Thank you!

  16. My principal introduced me to your blog about a month ago, I’ve been hooked ever since. I would love to read more about your journey to help me with mine!

  17. Thank you for your courage to speak out and give encouragement to fellow educators! I would live the opportunity to read, “Passionate Learners.” Please keep sharing your experience, strength and hope!!👍❤🌟

  18. As a preservice public school teacher, and a homeschool teacher of my own children where the world was their classroom and their learning was always passion driven, I am dying to read your book!

  19. Would love to read your book! I was introduced to your blog and Twitter through my master’s course! I would love to continue to better my classroom and eventually make a difference in a building as an administrator!

  20. Starting out my first year of teaching this fall!! Would love some summer reading that would make me a better teacher 🙂

  21. I’ll be reading your book! Sounds fascinating & love all your ideas. Always interested in engaging my students!!!

  22. As a reading teacher for the most struggling readers, I am constantly looking for ways to help my students find joy in reading and learning. I am confident that this book will help me do that.

  23. It sounds like your book would be inspirational and it’s just what I need to kick-off my summer reading selection. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy.

  24. I have been following you through other sources for a while and recently your blog. You inspire me to be a better teacher. Next year is my 25th year of teaching and I am happy to say I will be doing this for another 10 years minimum. Each year I make changes in my methods and curriculum, the kids change and we need to change with them. I work in a magnet school that seems to have lost its luster over the last couple of years and we are working through how to make us shine again with new methods and ideas to re-excite the kids and parents. I would love to read this book to help my kids become more excited about their own learning. We are a STEAM and PBL school and have high expectations for our kids to seek out learning on their own. I would love to share your book with other staff members also, once I read it I can recommend it to them.
