Shane, Managing Editor for TopMastersInEducation.com. "This is just one more resource that new teachers can turn to for help."
Books on the list cover a broad range of subjects and styles, from pedagogical theory to practical how-to, novels to autobiography, history to classroom discipline, politics to reading, writing, and arithmetic. They have all received a high level of online recommendations by current and former teachers and principals.
