Favorite Books to Get Me Motivated For The School Year!

There is nothing like a literary best friend, who is also the coolest teacher on the block, at least that's what I think when I read books about education, like the people writing them are your bosom buddies or at least a kindred spirit. Below are my top four favorite reads to get me pumped up for teaching!


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. 

What are your favorite books to read before school starts? Xo, L
