It's the end of the school year and I'm so looking forward to a relaxing summer! One thing I definitely want to do is catch up on my reading list. I have a whole stack of fun books just waiting for me.


But I also want to fit in a few education books - because 16 years into my teaching career, I know there's always more to learn. To get some new ideas, I recently polled some of my teacher friends and colleagues to find out what they've been reading.
