Ship Rules:

  1. This book study is VOLUNTARY (and hopefully fun!!). If you participate it will count for 10 PD hours.
  2. There will be discussion questions during the study. Your answers and comments will be the accountability for your PD hours. All you have to do is leave a comment/post with your thoughts about the topic. (I will award hours based on weekly participation.)
  3. To quote my mother, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."Let's not be disrespectful or rude to each other. We have to feel safe to learn and express our views without judgement. If so, you may have to walk the plank! :)
  4. HAVE FUN! This book is all about how to become a better, more energetic, more joyful, more passionate educator. Some parts may resonate more with you than others and that is perfectly fine! Take what pieces of information work for you and use them. The rest, you can toss overboard!
