My favorite teacher resources

Updated on June 12, 2012
I purchased my copy years ago.  It is actually packed in my classroom, but I wanted you to see the book.   I'm sure there are more recent versions.   Worth every penny!

Good reads in no particular order.

Bottle Biology: Science experiments using various bottles. Very few items need to be purchased and I've been able to adapt the designs.

Doug Lemov's Teach Like a Champion: 49 Techniques that put students on the path to college.I read this for my book club (at school). It has tips that can be used right away and it is a fast read. New teachers and experienced teachers in my building enjoyed it so much that the media center purchased a few copies.

Harry and Rosemary Wong's The First Days of School How to be an effective teacher. I'm sure most have come across it back in their college days. I included it because it is worth a second look.

Lee Canter's Assertive Discipline. This is another 'blast from the past' book. It also has tips that can be used immediately. After reading one of his books, he became my 'go to' author for classroom discipline tips.


Other resources


Don't close your classroom door and never venture out. Your co-workers are the very best resource of all. If you are an experienced teacher be sure to include the new teachers. Everyone can improve and grow.
