Main description

Expert guidance for growing your teaching career-in your school, in the community, and beyond

The Master Teacher is like having a successful veteran at your side, ready with solid advice and recommendations for growing professionally and for getting the most satisfaction out of teaching. This book helps you discover how to use your unique talents in your school and in your community; it also teaches you new skills such as organizing a professional development workshop for your colleagues and spearheading fundraising efforts alongside your PTO. Filled with checklists, sample plans, reproducibles, and invaluable advice, The Master Teacher is your mentor for this next phase in your education journey.

The Master Teacher contains reams of material to help you:

  • Attend the right conferences to aid your personal development
  • Manage and nurture a student teacher in your classroom
  • Write a successful grant proposal
  • Start an awesome after-school program
  • Conduct productive parent nights

When you grow professionally, not only do you benefit, but your school, your community, and the world around you does, too. The Master Teacher helps you in this endeavor, giving you the tools for truly enriching your teaching experience.
