Subtitled: Teachers Who Nourish a Child's Spirit

Educators are encouraged to become "spirit whisperers." Spirit whisperers are people that gently, but purposefully help students blossom into responsible adults through the most minute to major situations. Through their specific guiding and teaching, students learn to make their own decisions and accept their consequences.

I love this book (reread). It has a wealth of wise advice and reasons to back it - every educator should be required to read it. Not everybody will "buy into it," but it would be very difficult to not take something positive from it.


  1. I will so pass this title on to my friends at work!

  2. Staci ~ This book is really inspiring. It gets me excited and eager to teach. If any of your friends have gone to MRA, they may have seen him. He's from Michigan, too. :)

    Athough I'm not teaching I did get my degree in education and I love books like this. Thanks for the heads up.

  4. Stacybuckeye ~ Your teaching background should come in handy with your little one on the way. This book is actually good for parents as well.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
