I opened my email to discover the following treasure from The Canadian Teacher
Hi Sue Roseman
All this week I've shared some free tips from a new teacher resource package created by award winning teacher Marjan Glavac.
If you enjoyed those tips, you can find dozens more ideas in his package: How To Stay Motivated In Teaching
I was shocked to find out that he's now giving away 16 free bonuses!
After reading through some of the teacher testimonials I can see that teachers have been mightily impressed with this resource...
Teacher Debbie Morgan from Banks County Upper Elementary in Homer Georgia USA had this to say:
"Thank you so much for the resource that makes me feel like I am still in the right career. So many times before reading "How To Make a Difference", I left school feeling that it is time to make a change. But now, I feel so much better about myself in the classroom that I am able to tackle even the most difficult of situations and still come out feeling that I AM making a difference in a child's life. Your strategies, especially about the reward systems have had a wonderful impact on my students this school year. For the first time, I have a student teacher and I have asked her to read it as well."
"I have a very difficult behaviour class that would not complete their work or bring needed materials / homework to class. By placing the responsibility on them by asking them, "How do you plan to make sure that it's here tomorrow?" and involving the class in designing their own marking schemes has had a remarkable change on the majority of the class. Work is being completed, correctly and neatly and they are coming prepared to class. It has been a long struggle and a great adventure to get them this far and it will be great to see them go farther.

How To Make A Difference: Inspiring Students to Do Their Best"" saved my mind. I was at the point in my teaching career where I was having self-doubt whether I was making a difference in my students. Reading the book and using some of the useful suggestions re-enforced my decision to become a teacher. Thank you."
