The Empowered Classroom LLC: Equipping Teachers, empowering students.

Start a Book Club with a Purpose

Teaching can often be a lonely job even though we are with students all day long; we race in from the parking lot, teach all day, eat lunch at our desk, then race home weary and with a bag filled with papers that need to be graded. I wrote The Power of the Positive Teacher in 10 chapters with questions at the end of each chapter so that it could be used for a book club. Gather a group of teachers (don’t forget the newest members of your faculty) and use this book as a starting point for developing fun friendships, laughing together, and sharing great teaching tips with one another! God built us to be together.
