Today is a special day! Not just any day!
It’s the RenewED Teacher’s Blogivesary!
To commemorate this special day, I began the Teacher Book Club group on Facebook!
We are currently reading the book, “Lost At School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them,” by Ross W. Greene Ph.D. Feel free to join us by commenting below with for Facebook name or searching for Teacher Book Club on Facebook and requesting to join!
The purpose of this blog is to motivate, encourage, and inspire teachers, and that is only so we can motivate, encourage, and inspire our students.
Keeping with the theme of this blog, I decided to begin a Teacher Book Club for the same reasons.
Here are my hopes from reading and discussing this book:
We will complain less and do more to help our students
We will learn to understand our most misunderstood students
We will model behaviors we expect to see in our students
We will support, motivate, encourage, and inspire each other respectfully
We will build each other up, even if we do not agree
We will continue to learn and grow together
We will try strategies from the book and share the good, the bad, and the ugly of what worked, what didn’t work, and what you can do differently to make it work better
We will be renewed and happy teachers!
As we continue to learn and grow together, I would like to hear what you want to get from reading this book or Teacher Book Club. Please share in the comments below or on our Facebook Group!
Finally, to continue with the celebration, over the next two weeks, I will post short blurbs on what it means to be a R.E.N.E.W.E.D. T.E.A.C.H.E.R.! Don’t miss out!
Now it’s time get to reading!
Until then, Happy Teaching!
