If you know me (in real life or online) you know that I not only love teaching and coaching, I also love learning. I do not believe one person can know everything and because of that I am always striving to learn as much as I can. I am all about professional development and I have an arsenal of tools I use to help myself continue to grow and improve. I am constantly reading blogs, listening to Podcasts, and taking courses in order to continue my growth. I order to help you all do the same I am going to break my favorite professional development resources down into a little series for you. This way it won’t seem quite so overwhelming and you can follow just a few more people/outlets with each Thursdays post.
Two weeks ago I shared 3 Blogs to Follow in the first installment of the Professional Development Series, so be sure to make sure you have added all three to your BlogLovin or Feedly. Then, last week I told you all about 4 Podcasts to Listen to for some amazing free advice. I hope you have them all set to download and are listening to them while you get ready or on your rides into work.
Today, I am going to share 5 ebooks to buy for great tips and fabulous advice. Add these to you list to purchase and download and read for some awesome professional development.
