While technically not an education book, Anne does become a teacher, and Gilbert Blythe was my first literary crush, so this needed to make the list.
I read this when I was student teaching and again when I was teaching my first year, it's laugh out loud funny and heartbreaking at times too. I wish everyone had this much enthusiasm for teaching!
A fantastic, fantastic, fantastic step by step of how to introduce kids to art, I can't say enough about this one.
Rafe is insane, in such a good way, he gives everything he has to teaching these kids and they excel. It is seriously one of the most inspiring and daunting books I have ever read.
