What To Read in 2022

So it’s that time of the year again when I get to order books for my birthday, which is my favorite gift ever because it keeps on giving for months and months and months. The deal is, as most of you know, that I have to finish reading all of last year’s books before I get to order new ones, and this year I just finished over the winter holiday…just in time!

As usual, I’m encouraging you all to take a few minutes this week to look through these titles, and to order one (or five or ten) that resonate with you…or, do your own research and share those titles with me so I can add them to this list. The suggestions below revolve around the themes of education, leadership, health and well-being, and culture building, with an overarching focus on becoming a better person and educator for our world…and a better, healthier version of yourself! 

Anyway, happy reading in 2022…a good book can be transformative in so many ways, so please make the time, I promise you it will be time well spent. Have a wonderful week everyone and remember to be great for our students and good to each other.
