Do you have any recommendations for enjoyable books on teaching? There are a lot on Amazon with great ratings, which makes it hard to decide. I have been considering (haven't read): The End of Molasses Classes Whole Brain Teaching for Challenging Kids (not sure about my feelings on WBT though... I can see many kids loving it, but the techniques would have annoyed me as a student I think) Teach Like a Pirate Teach Like Your Hair's on Fire One book I recommend, especially for new teachers, is Educating Esme': Diary of a Teacher's First Year. It literally made me laugh out loud at several points.
