I've been doing a lot of thinking about teaching lately. I decided to clean out my professional literature and get rid of the texts I don't use. That amounted to a LOT of books (don't worry, I kept all the ones I love, LOL). I was going to put them in the staff room as freebies, but 2 teachers new to our school took them all before I could get them there.

I'll admit I was fearful that what is important to me would be important to no one else, but I was wrong. So, I got to thinking about this board. So many of the books I perused (some keeping, some giving away) are books we've discussed here. I guess this is my way of saying I miss our discussions.

I'm still working every day to be a better teacher. Even though I'm considering retiring in another 2 years, I'm still buying children's literature and writing new units of study.

Anybody wanna bring back ProfReadings?

michelle3or I still have about a thousand children's books in boxes in my garage. It's so hard to weed my babies. Last summer I even donated about a hundred to Goodwill. The professional books, I still have them in my home office. They are like trophies, almost. They really helped shape the teacher I became and am proud to still be. I gave some of the "le...See More
