Do You Know What Today Is?

Today is a special day! Not just any day!Happy Blogiversary

It’s the RenewED Teacher’s Blogivesary!

We are celebrating the one year anniversary of the blog’s launch, and the first published blog post. YAY! Click the link to read the first post on how to renew your passion!

To commemorate this special day, I began the Teacher Book Club group on Facebook!


We are currently reading the book, “Lost At School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them,” by Ross W. Greene Ph.D. Feel free to join us by commenting below with for Facebook name or searching for Teacher Book Club on Facebook and requesting to join!

Book 1

I have mine! Do you have yours?

The purpose of this blog is to motivate, encourage, and inspire teachers, and that is only so we can motivate, encourage, and inspire our students.

Keeping with the theme of this blog, I decided to begin a Teacher Book Club for the same reasons.

Here are my hopes from reading and discussing this book:

We will complain less and do more to help our students

We will learn to understand our most misunderstood students

We will model behaviors we expect to see in our students

We will support, motivate, encourage, and inspire each other respectfully

We will build each other up, even if we do not agree

We will continue to learn and grow together

We will try strategies from the book and share the good, the bad, and the ugly of what worked, what didn’t work, and what you can do differently to make it work better

and finally,

We will be renewed and happy teachers!

As we continue to learn and grow together, I would like to hear what you want to get from reading this book or Teacher Book Club. Please share in the comments below or on our Facebook Group!

Finally, to continue with the celebration, over the next two weeks, I will post short blurbs on what it means to be a R.E.N.E.W.E.D. T.E.A.C.H.E.R.! Don’t miss out!

Stay tuned!

Now it’s time get to reading!

Until then, Happy Teaching!

Krystal L. Smith, The RenewED Teacher
