Becoming UnShakable

I am so happy it is summer!
Happy for several reasons...First, there is just so much I like to do in the summer that I don't have for during the school year.  Things like hiking, camping, and playing outside, and reorganizing my stuff.

I also like to use my summers to recharge and refresh my spirit.   One way I do that is to join in on book study.  This way I learn new things and get new perspectives on my teaching.  This year was kind-of rough on me so I am particularly excited to read Unshakable by Angela Watson.

I got to meet Angela at a brunch with a few other teachers last year.  She is one of the most kind and incredibly insightful people I know.  We have chatted back and forth on email a bit and I find her to be the real deal....authentic.  She gave me some wonderful words of wisdom and helped me to think about all the things I love about teaching.  I am excited to read her latest book and join in on the discussions.

Along with her book, Angela is hosting an online book study group.  You can read more about it on her website, The Cornerstone.  All the information you need to join in, is right there.  She and Frankie Robinson will be sharing 20 ways to enjoy teaching in 20 days.  I am really looking forward to delving into this book and participating in the discussions.  Angela says, 

Don't wait for teaching to be fun again:  Plan on it!

Here's the BEST part....Angela has generously agreed to give away three digital copies of the book, Unshakeable, to three of my readers.  All you need to do is follow me on TpT, Facebook, or here at KinderKapers.  Enter in the Rafflecopter below:

Are you ready to be an unshakeable teacher again?  I am!  I am planning on it!   I love teaching and I want to feel the joy in teaching again.  More Joy....Less Stress!  I am off to start reading so I am ready for the conversations.   Join me!!


  1. I love learning new things and I can always use some inspiration for those tough days!

  2. What I love most about teaching is reading new books! I love introducing kids to new authors and books that may interest them.
