FREEBIE: The LIT Teacher Series

I know this feeling because I’ve had it too! I’ve thought about walking out of my classroom door and never looking back. Instead, however, I asked myself, “Why did I do this in the first place? Why did I get this degree and take this job?”
My answer is always the same: literature is pure magic. It has inspired me, motivated me, and taught me throughout my whole life. Everyone deserves to connect to a profound piece of literature. And when I remember that, my job began to feel less like a job and more like a calling.
So here I am, on a mission to help re-inspire teachers like you and get you psyched about the power of literature. As the kids say, “It’s Lit!” Teaching literature, that is.
