It's crazy how these months just keep flying by. I had plans for January, plans that included a book chat for Snarky's Book Bunch and our January picks. It just didn't happen. I'm hoping to rectify that in February with a chat towards the end of the month.
I do hope you're following along, though, and you were able to get through your January read. February is for a book that will help you grow personally or professionally. I thought I'd add my two cents and help you get started.
Snarky's Suggestions for February: A Book for Personal or Professional Growth
#2: Awakened: Change Your Mindset to Transform Your Teaching by Angela Watson. This one is on my personal to-read list and I've heard nothing but positive things about it. I am a firm believer in mind set being the key to changing our habits and this book is a guide to getting there.
#3: The Together Teacher by Maia Heyck-Merlin. Don't we all wish we could just feel like we have ourselves organized? I don't know about you, but I am constantly feeling like I am three steps behind no matter how much I plan and prepare. This book has practical tips and tools to help you form better habits to keep you organized and less stressed. Check it out.
#4: Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World by Mark Williams. If you have never dabbled in the world of mindfulness, I highly suggest you give it a try. It has helped me on numerous occasions lead a more centered, fulfilled life. I will be honest, mindfulness isn't easy. That's why it's called a practice. Try it out - it might be a tool that will benefit your teaching and your life.
#5: Year of Yes: How to Dance it Out, Stand in the Rain, and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes. This book has come highly recommended to me by several friends and family members. It is on my personal to-read list and hopefully will be one I read for Book Bunch.
