My Summer Reading List

One of the things I love most about summer is the time I have to READ!  I never seem to find time during the school year so I compile a list of books to enjoy over the summer.  This year I have quite the collection.  Here are the books I currently have on my list.  They are not in any certain order.  Send me your faves so I can add them to my list!

Last week Todd Nesloney spent the day at our #prospertrendingnow conference and I have to say his book is at the top of my list.  He made a huge impact on the teachers and administrators in my district and I’m looking forward to reading his book first.

My list includes books on student engagement and empowerment, changing our schools, leadership and personalizing professional learning.

  1. Kids Deserve It! by Todd Nesloney and Adam Welcome

  1. I finished Kids Deserve it Last Night and found it very inspirational. I recently read Innovator’s Mindset and thought it was outstanding! I have already revisited it several times. I am currently reading Who’s Doing All the Work. Any of these three books would make a great book study. 🙂
