Educators today often feel out of touch with their students. To effectively teach children, teachers must first connect with them and understand them. This book shows teachers how to become relevant to their students by leaning in, establishing implicit understanding, tackling emotionality, transforming culture, looking around, and creating experiences. Includes practical strategies, engaging anecdotes, and ready-to-use mini-lessons.
After 20 years in public education, Valerie King continues to innovate and inspire learners and educators. Through her roles as a 2nd-, 3rd-, and 4th-grade teacher and, most recently, a K–5 advanced learning and gifted specialist in the Cobb County School District, Georgia, Valerie has championed relevancy for learners in order to promote their awareness that they can have world-changing agency. Valerie earned a B.A. in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of Montevallo, Alabama, and her M.A. in Early Childhood Education from Kennesaw State University, Georgia. After earning an Ed.S. in Technology Leadership from Northwestern State University, Louisiana, she returned to Kennesaw State University to earn her Ed.D. in Teacher Leadership. Whether it is speaking at local or national conferences, leading educators through professional learning experiences, or teaching in a classroom, Valerie is an educator with an unwavering commitment of soul, creativity, and love for empowering learners of all ages. This is her first book for Scholastic.
