Hello, I just finished a really great book, called "Educating Esme: Diary of a Teacher's First Year" by Esme Raji Codell. It was amazing, and really taught me how to face every day with passion and commitment, and to always put the children first while teaching. Do any of you have any other suggestions for good books about teaching or about teacher's true stories/experiences? I was not an education major, so I was not exposed to very much literature regarding education. Anything would help :) Thanks!

"The First Day of School" by Harry Wong is a good read! At my new job I was given a copy of "Teach Like a Champion" by Doug Lemov which so far is pretty good too!

I would also suggest Tribes by Seth Godin. It's short, but very powerful. Will support you to fuel your passion!
