This book is great. I heard about it from a podcast that I listen to called the teachers need teachers podcast. The author was amazing during the interview.

I loved this book! I started it and finished it in a few hours. I could not stop reading it. The book provided me with a positive mindset of how to go into my first year of teaching. I will definitely be keeping this book on hand for some helpful tips in my first year of teaching!

Edumagic Shine On: A Guide for New Teachers is one of the most down-to-earth “reality checks” that I have ever encountered for new and future teachers. It not only serves as a guide to the ups and downs in the teaching profession, but it inspires new teachers to push through the inconsistencies, unfairness and hurt that they see in children’s lives and in the classroom setting. Through the use of conversations with four beginning teachers, Edumagic Shine On can act as an inspiring support system, focusing on how to navigate the first year of teaching so that one becomes not just someone who things “happen to”, but someone who is truly a reflective practitioner during the long hours, lack of sleep, and lack of respect that often accompany those first years in the profession. Not only does Edumagic Shine On encourage us to all be constant learners to help our students, but it also inspires us to learn from each other so that we can be the best people possible for our students, our families, and ourselves.
