Inspiring Educators Who Inspire Future Leaders

MORE Summer Reads for Teacher Professional Development

summer reading

Here we are in early July, and we have already come to the midway point in the summer. I hope you’ve had an opportunity to (re)energize yourself — spending time with family and friends or curled up somewhere with a really good book.

We all know that professional development is essential in our field. And, one of the easiest ways to obtain good professional development is by reading a great book. In late May, I suggested several titles to help teachers and administrators kick-start their reading for the summer. However, if you are like me your summer reading list could go on and on forever. So with the help of friends and colleagues, I have a few more books I’d like to share just in case you are still looking for the perfect book to inspire and motivate you as you prepare for September. Happy reading! tlb
