Book Recommendations

 I am an enthusiastic reader of teacher resource books. As a book reviewer for Corwin Press and a teacher who is genuinely interested in learning all I can about my craft, I have read dozens and dozens of titles in the areas of classroom management, brain-based learning, curriculum, instruction, and a whole host of others. My book recommendations are designed to help busy teachers find the resources they need.
