BOOK OF THE WEEK: "Kids Deserve It!" by Todd Nesloney

You had the opportunity to hear Todd Nesloney speak during preplanning when we visited Denmark. His book "Kids Deserve It!" is the focus of one of our PLC groups this year but is also an option for anyone to read! It encourages teachers to create an atmosphere in their classroom that allows kids to learn in innovative ways and shares why students and teachers deserve to spend their days learning and teaching in this type of atmosphere.
