I'm popping in today to share some of our new books that we recently received. I am a big fan of Scholastic and have sent book orders home regularly for years now.
Just in this book order alone, we earned 20 FREE books! Of course, I build up the excitement. Just seeing the BOOK BOX is excitement alone! We look at every book together, label it with a genre sticker, and read the summary. I usually have students scouring the library to see if they've been added yet. Sometimes I'll do a book raffle if there is a lot of interest in one title.

I hope to be back to blogging more regularly soon! This time of year seems to be so busy and I am just enjoying pre-Christmas fun with my little family! Happy Sunday!


  1. Hi Lana,

    I was hoping you might be interested in reviewing my book, The Empowered Teacher: Proven Tips for Classroom Success. Published by Brown Books in August, 2016, it focuses on three main areas:

    creating positive relationships with students, colleagues, and parents
    establishing a habit of self care to improve work/life balance
    strategies to decrease the amount of time it takes to complete the daily minutiae required by all teachers everywhere

    I wrote the book after resigning from a K-8 principal position I had held for 14 years; today, I continue to work with students, teachers, and parents, all with the goal of helping everyone achieve a greater level of personal success in whatever role they hold. I also write articles for the Huffington Post and a various blogs, offer continuing professional education for Texas educators, and speak/present at conferences as opportunities arise.

    You are welcome to peruse my website (, the website for my book ( or the website for my bracelets ( Also, these are links for videos regarding both the bracelets ( and the book (; I thought you might enjoy seeing them.

    Please let me know your mailing address if you are interested in receiving a copy of the book and a few bracelets. I can also send the press packet, if you are interested.
