Summer Professional Reads


There are only a few more days left to the school year before summer vacation arrives. The last three months of this school year have been unlike any other due to the Coronavirus pandemic. More than ever, I feel the need to rest, relax, and recharge this summer.  Along with the summer activities I will engage in to help me make the summer months restful and relaxing, such as going to the beach, biking, and spending time with friends and family, I also plan to enhance my teacher self by reading and learning from the books in my summer reading To-Be-Read Stack. Every summer, I read a few professional books because reading and thinking about new strategies that I can implement within my teaching practice helps to reenergize me for the school year ahead.

Books in my Summer Reading To-Be-Read Stack...


The Brave Educator: Honest Conversations about Navigating Race in the Classroom by Krystle Cobran


Every Minute Matters: 40+ Activities for Literacy-Rich Classroom Transitions by Molly Ness ***


The Joyful Teacher: Strategies for Becoming the Teacher Every Student Deserves by Berit Gordon


No More Teaching Without Positive Relationships by Jaleel R. Howard, Tanya Milner-McCall, and Tyrone C. Howard


Not Light, But Fire: How to Lead Meaningful Race Conversations in the Classroom by Matthew R. Kay


Overcoming Dyslexia: Second Edition, Completely Revised and Updated by Sally Shaywitz and Jonathan Shaywitz


I would love to hear about the books other educators will be reading this summer. What books are on your summer reading to-be-read lists?

***This book is not pictured in my To-Be-Read Stack photo because it has not yet published. I have pre-ordered it and expect it when it publishes in July.
