Great Back to School Read

I love summer! It's a great time to reflect, rejuvenate, and catch up on reading professional literature. This book was recently recommended by 2 "runners" in my district. I ordered it immediately, couldn't stop reading it, and ordered 3 more copies to give the younger educators in our family (just one of the perks of continuing the family include another book to read).

Whether you are a runner, jogger, walker, rider or driver on your team, this is a great book to place on your back to school supply list.
