Earlier this week, I posted a status on Facebook, announcing the good news- I will be publishing a book this year!
Thank you to everyone for the lovely comments and well wishes. I really appreciate it. I hope this book will be useful to those who read my website. I just feel like I have a lot of ideas and information which I wish to share with others, and time just doesn’t allow me to blog as regularly as I would like. This book seems to be a natural progression. The readership of my blog has soared over the past year or so, and I think now is the time to just put a pen to paper, get all my ideas down, and share them with those of you who love teaching as much as I do.
I know there’s a lot of misinformation regarding teaching. I get emails and messages on a daily basis from student teachers, probationary teachers, and even fully qualified teachers. I remember meeting teachers at my seminars, who like me last year, were searching for answers which colleges don’t always provide. It was actually a few people who read my blog who gave me this idea! A number of you suggested I write a book, so here it is!
In this book, I hope to help student teachers, those of you doing the DIP, and qualified teachers who just need some new ideas!
I am working away on the book whenever time allows, but it is taking a lot of time! I hope to have it ready and published by the Easter holidays, hopefully!
This is a rough idea so far of the content of my teacher’s guide book, but there will be more added.
