Invest in excellence--for your students every day, your colleagues year after year, and yourself for a lifetime.
Jimmy Casas, veteran educator and author of Culturize, believes that by cultivating a mindset that centers on investing in students, colleagues, and--most of all--themselves, educators can shift schools away from a culture that runs on compliance, blame, and fear. In Live Your Excellence, he shares inspiration, stories, and strategies to help overcome the negative undercurrents that exist in school culture today.
Jimmy explains how educators of all stripes can embrace an investment-based approach to everything from collaborative leadership to challenging students to feelings of inadequacy. His insights into navigating the complexities of working in schools will be an invaluable resource for all of the educators who desire--more than anything--to rediscover their own excellence and make a difference.
