What's better than a good story? A story with a message!
Being an educator is hard work, and it's easy to doubt whether we're making a difference in the lives of our students. In Stories of EduInfluence, veteran educator Brent Coley shares stories from more than two decades in the classroom and front office, stories illustrating the life-changing power we possess.
In each chapter, Brent transparently recalls experiences as a classroom teacher and site administrator, from humble successes to epic failures. These stories focus on the unique powers every educator possesses, powers that comprise what Brent calls EduInfluence. Each power is centered on a particular belief that, if embraced, can transform one's practice. Chapters end with reflection questions to help readers take what they've read and apply it in their own classrooms, offices or at home with their own kids.
If you have ever become discouraged and asked yourself, "Am I making a difference?" this book is for you. If you're looking for encouragement and inspiration conveyed through stories that will make you smile, laugh, and even cry, this book is for you. Because you do make a difference, every single day, even when you don't realize it!
