    Hi yall! I graduated (EC-6 ESL Generalist) and I am currently subbing until I can find a job.

    I don't want to come off as sounding dumb, but I feel like there are many things that I need to brush up on (as far as things that I will be asked during an interview...)

    What books would yall recommend for me?

    Thank you soooo much!!!

    Make sure you can speak to how the pedagogy and philosophies promoted in professional reading fits with who you are as a teacher/how instruction would look in your class room. Anyone can read and regurgitate a book...it's entirely something else to apply what one has read to their own thinking and practices.:rolleyes:
