This Teacher Appreciation Week Grab Your Favorite Instructor a Great Read!

With the school year coming to an end, it is important to remember to thank your (or your child’s) teacher! They’ve dedicated their lives to shaping the young minds of our communities. A great read is the perfect way to thank them before summer begins. Richter Publishing has three amazing book stories choose from by our very talented writers.

 

Books for Teachers

From Stand-up Comedian to Stand-up Teacher is the story of Mike Rivera, “America’s Most Hilarious Teacher.” Talented and experienced in the worlds of both comedy and teaching, Mike brings together the unique perspectives of a nationally touring stand-up comedian, and an award-winning teacher, with the purpose of invigorating today’s American classroom. He calls this “The Comedy/Teaching Craft” and “The STAND-UP Strategies.”

In Learning Curve Pierce Brunson shares his story, and then a list of characteristics each student can develop before success happens, so that when they find their passion, these skills will be a part of their character, and the transition toward success will be easier, faster, and more rewarding.

In Rock the Crowd: How The Cool Teachers Inspire More Students, Earn More Respect, and Become Lifelong Mentors Pierce Brunson shares all the things cool teachers do that make them successful in working with, and producing, successful and long lasting, learning-centered relationships. Rock the Crowd is great for teachers who are struggling to find their teaching groove and to reenergize those that are already grooving.
