Spring Hill, KS Professor & Author Publishes Book on Teachers
January 23, 2021 (PRLEAP.COM) Entertainment NewsThe Teacher as Somebody, a new book by Stu Ervay, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.
The Teacher as Somebody details the creative conditions where teachers become thoroughly empowered for academic leadership, decision-making and action-taking.
Especially relevant in today's COVID-19 climate, this book links academic goals to innovative instructional strategies, enabling teachers to be the expert curriculum developers. The underlying premise of The Teacher as Somebody debunks traditional school district management systems. Instead, a complete overhaul is offered, affecting academic decision-making and action-taking processes. Thus, teachers become advocates for their own innate abilities as well as the students they inspire.
The message of The Teacher as Somebody is an outgrowth of 30+ years of educational experience as well as a definitive link to The Curriculum Leadership Institute (cliweb.org). CLI's success provides evidence that The Teacher as Somebody is not simply one author's idea. It is a direct reflection of what actually works to improve the American educational system.
