Cleansing the teaching palate

It's been a long year with a rough group of kids. I will be starting a new district in a new grade in August. I've taught fifth in the same district for many years and am moving to third grade.

The fresh start excites me! The last few years have left a bad taste in my mouth with teaching. Can anyone suggest some uplifting professional books on teaching or classroom management? I also invite any other suggestions that will help in giving me a personal and professional lift. I just want to be a happy teacher again and embrace this new start to the full extent. Can't wait for summer break!

I love her book, "20 Ways to Enjoy Teaching Everyday, No Matter What." I'm 30 years in, and found it very uplifting. I wish I had read it years ago!

Good luck in your new jobs,

I keep a copy of Chicken Soup for the Teacher's Soul on my desk! Short, easy read stories that help me when things get rough!! It's many years old, but I still enjoy the stories!

Maybe Carol Dweck's Mindsets. Focusing on a growth mindset for both you and your students opens up the probability of learning, improving, changing. I recommend a real vacation this summer--go someplace new (or favorite). Have a total break before starting fresh in a new place. Here's hoping it goes really well.

I saw Timothy Kanold speak at a PLC Conference about his new book "Heart! Fully Forming Your Professional Life as a Teacher and Leader". I might fit what you are looking for. There aren't a ton of reviews online because it just came out about a month ago, but as a speaker he was engaging and the information he shared seems like a relevant topic for you.
