Summer Reads 2018

Can you smell it? Summer! Are you on the countdown? I am! It’s always sad to say goodbye to my group of students, but I love being able to reenergize my body and take some time for myself and family. I love to read, but honestly during the school year I just find that I am too busy. So, I pack my reading in during my summer break. Here are some of my books that I will be reading this summer.

Professional Books

During the summer, I always pick a few books to read for professional growth. The first one, The Power of Habit has been on my wishlist for a while. This is the summer I plant to read it!


I have heard great things about The Power of Habit.

The next one is on my list because I heard a speaker talk about secondary trauma and gave us this book to read. As teachers we experience secondary trauma on a daily basis. This book is about self-care for those who experience secondary trauma.


Trauma Stewardship

Another book that looks intriguing is From Striving to Thriving. I always seem to have a couple of students who struggle with reading confidence. I am hoping this book will provide some strategies to use to help with that.
