What if learning was exciting? What if students felt important and empowered every time they walked into the building? What if parents looked forward to calls from their children's teachers and principals instead of cringing when the school's number popped up on their phones?
To Todd Nesloney and Adam Welcome, those aren't far-fetched what ifs; they can (and should) be a reality for every teacher, school, parent, and student.
In Kids Deserve It!, Todd and Adam encourage you to think big and make learning fun and meaningful for students. While you're at it, you just might rediscover why you became an educator in the first place.
- Learn why you should be calling parents to praise your students (and employees).
- Discover ways to promote family interaction and improve relationships for kids at school and at home.
- Be inspired to take risks, shake up the status quo, and be a champion for your students.

Good but lacking
Good book but lacking. Maybe it's because I'm p-ssed off at the beta male voice of one of them (can't tell which one) I watched both of their videos on Y-tube, and his less than manly idea of teachers. "I'm a whimp" he implies, "students make so emotional", blah blah blah. There's nothing wrong of the emotion with teaching but he used phrases that are too emotional and too self pittty. Irritates me and makes me want to put down the book, because clearly he lacks confidence and is not a good role model.

Everything School Should Be
A couple of years ago, I believe, this book was recommended to me. I was reading other things at the time, but I wish I had read this instead. It is almost worth the cost of tuition for teacher training in college. So many good ideas and beyond relavant to the current world of education. It is also a great book for the teacher on the verge of giving up. The title itself should be everyone's philosophy of education.
Thanks! So many great ideas I hope I can use a few to improve the classroom experience of the Learners I see everyday!
