Educational books I have enjoyed

People at my workshops ask if I have read any good educational books.  Thank to my travel schedule and the whims of the airlines, I have the opportunity to read a number of outstanding books.  So a number of these blogs will deal with some of my recent favorites.

There is a simple message in Scars of Love – Tears of Hope.  The message is that educators can and do influence the lives of children.  Written by Deborah Goforth, an educator with 27 years experience, this highly personal vision of what teaching is all about.  The author explains, how we can leave scars of love on the children we see and interact with every day of we can leave scars of hurt. The stories Deborah tells are poignant as well as refreshing.  They evoke tears as well as laughter.
