I am interested in the conversation about where education needs to be in 5, 10, and 20 years.
Below are a few of the books I’m accumulating for summer reading. What else would you recommend?
Daring Greatly — Brene Brown — Definitely check out her TEDx Talk too. Brown tackles vulnerability and shame. Her work has changed the way I approach leadership teaching, and my family. Engaging your family, colleagues, students from alongside and working to see what they see and feel what they feel.
The Secrets of Happy Families — A great book on parenting and being a better parent in our intensely competitive and over scheduled world.
Creating Innovators — Tony Wagner — What we should be doing/thinking about in education to prepare our students for their futures.
If you’d like to discuss what books you are recommending and how you are helping your faculty look towards the future, please let me know.
