Given so many choices on what professional book to read this summer was more difficult than I thought it would be. There were many choices and I remember how amazing I felt after finishing TEACH like a Pirate last summer and the courage it gave me to give into my passion and share it with my students. I decided to read The Wild Card so that I can work on bringing my creativity into the classroom throughout the school year and not just as I am setting up my classroom. I started reading and instantly connected with Hope and Wade, I love the different perspectives they give throughout the book and giving the reader’s an insight into what their own personal lives were like. I love how they make it that creativity is something that anyone can have and it can be different from one person to the next no matter what kind of background you come from. This is uplifting to me as I continue to read this book and get excited about what I will continue to learn.
