Pete's latest book, "In the Garden of Hearts: Meditations, Consolations, and Blessings for Teachers" is aimed at supporting and inspiring the hearts of teachers and providing them with space…space to step back and look at teaching, and their lives, from a different perspective, a wider lens that may open doors to new ways of thinking about themselves, their classrooms, and their students.
Pete's first book "A Path with Heart: The Inner Journey to Teaching Mastery" is an invitation to think about great teaching as a journey of personal and professional self-discovery. Master Teachers understand, and research confirms, that it’s not only what we “know” about our subject and pedagogy that determines our effectiveness; but also how well we know our students and ourselves.
