I need professional development books and workbooks to enhance professional growth.
Our school is a therapeutic day school program whose task is to provide emotional support and academic opportunities to children who have been unable to succeed in community school settings due to emotional, learning, and behavioral difficulties.
The majority of our students live at a residential children's home and are wards of the state.
Our school runs as a trauma-informed program, aiming to help our students grow from their pasts and learn how to cope in effective ways. Despite the challenges that our students face, they are incredible children. Their resiliency, love for learning, and curiosity are truly inspiring.
I strive to make my classroom a welcoming and safe community and to help my students explore learning and grow into independent and productive citizens.
It can be hard to find professional development opportunities that not only fit in with my busy teaching schedule but actually would be meaningful for the students I am teaching.
I am requesting a variety of books and workbooks to help me stay up to date on special education research and expand my skill set.
I am requesting books on fostering resilience in my students, the "whole brain teaching" approach, culturally relevant teaching, challenging behaviors, and more. Next year I will be coaching and mentoring teachers, and one of the books I have requested will help guide my brainstorming in taking on this additional role.
