The new cover of my 2nd edition!
A log story short, but my first book Passionate Learners will finally come out as a print version and a e-book in September! Not only that but it will be relased on Amazon and internationally. I was overwhelmed by the positive response that the book had when it came out in 2014, even as it was released just in e-book version, but so thrilled that I will finally be able to hold it in my hands.
Along with it coming out as a print book, it has been updated, thus the 2nd edition! Being a middle school teacher has allowed me to really expand upon some of the ideas as I have met my biggest challenge in the classroom with my 7th graders, and I mean that in the best of ways. I loved re-writing this book, coming up with new ideas and adding more of the journey that I am on for empowering and engaging students. My students are a part of this book as well and I am so grateful for their words and how I have been given the chance to let them speak to teachers all around the globe. I am so thankful to Routledge for taking a chance with me and this book. Let the book release countdown begin!
