eBooks for Educators
Before I became interested in eBooks and eventually turning this new-found interest and passion into an Internet business, I was an educator. After 32 years as an elementary school teacher and school administrator I had collected a great deal of material about teaching and learning. The eBooks for Educators found on this page is an attempt to share with you the wisdom I have gained through experience.
My interest in life-long learning, taking time to reflect on the teaching/learning process, presenting numerous workshops on a variety of topics, writing a workbook for school administrators on supervision and evaluation as well doing professional development presentations it occurred to me that I should be converting the material I had previously used into eBooks myself.
My very first eBook was called, Supervision and Evaluation of Classroom Teachers - Part 1 - An Overview of the Basic Process. At that time I was working with Glenn Dietzel with the TeachereBooks.com site. Glenn has since moved on to the business side of eBooks and I have focussed on helping authors write their eBooks. It was evident when giving this eBook away for free that there was a market for other eBooks on the topic. Literally thousands of educators downloaded this eBook. You can image how that made me feel. I was finally one of the 81% of Americans (actually I'm Canadian) surveyed who said one of their dreams was to write a book.
My teaching background impacts not only my writing style but my approach to helping others become eBook authors. My primary objective in working with eBook authors is "tohelp eBook authors help themselves".
My passion for teaching and learning combined with my new-found skills of eBook authoring allow me the opportunity to share with educators what I have learned over the past 32 years of teaching and 10 years of retirement working with eBooks.
Starting with workshops, presentations, lectures, reports, committee work, policy development, curriculum development, train-the-trainer sessions and creating units of study for use in the classroom, I have been able to "massage" the documents that went with these activities into some incredible content for educational eBooks.
If I may put in a plug right now for eBook authoring, I would challenge you as an educator to consider sharing your passion, expertise, and materials you have produced with your fellow teachers through eBooks. And even further I would challenge you to then offer the eBook authoring experience to your students.
I invite you to look at the brief descriptions of several eBooks I have written with a target market of classroom teachers and school administrators. Anyone involved as an educator, instructor, teacher or presenter could benefit from the eBooks I have made available to you.

The Internet and eBook technology are incredible!

An example of a reflective quickie:
Are you wasting your time?
It may be time to do a time analysis. For the next week, keep track of the following information: What jobs could be eliminated? What can be delegated?What tasks could be done less often? What are you doing that is a great idea but really isn’t worth the time and effort required to carry out this task?
Now, what can you do with the data you have collected? How many minutes per day or week can you use more productively by making some changes? Take back more control of your day by analyzing how you spend your time currently and what changes you can make. Make a plan. Plan the change. Do it!

New curriculum IN! Old curriculum must go OUT!
Become a “Goodwill” teacher. During spring house cleaning you gather up those items that you no longer need, don’t have to keep, or you’ve outgrown. You throw them out. In a similar fashion, you must also toss out old curriculum when the new is introduced. Often, you can not afford to keep even your very best lessons or that favourite unit of study. Adding new curriculum, while not removing something, is a disaster waiting to happen. Time for teaching hasn’t changed. You can not do more with the same time! Be ruthless. Do yourself a big favour.

How much time have you spent reflecting upon and articulating your personal philosophy of leadership as it pertains to the educational system?
Whether you are currently a leader, aspiring to be in a leadership position or a classroom teacher, you owe it to yourself and your colleagues to explore your personal philosophy of leadership.

YOU owe it to yourself and those you lead…
to STOP making decisions on a case by case basis
take the time to REFLECT ON the PAST, ABOUT the PRESENT, and FOR the FUTURE
to CONSOLIDATE your experiences to establish your LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHY and LEADERSHIP STYLE
For personal and professional growth to occur you must not only have a well-articulated educational leadership philosophy but you must use it to become the leader you want to be.
You can not afford to simply "fly by the seat of your pants" from one leadership decision to another day in and day out!
Working within an established framework provided by a well written philosophy of leadership that expresses your beliefs makes your leadership role a more rewarding and meaningful one.
Using The Leadership Secrets of the Canada Goose as inspiration, take a long hard look at what has shaped your leadership style, what you are currently doing and what you wish to do in the future.
Explore your leadership style and philosophy with a series of powerful exercises that will change you forever. And you can have some fun at the same time!
