I am incredibly humbled and quite frankly in disbelief that my new book is published. That's right, you heard it correctly. I am a published author. All Hands on Deck: Tools for Connecting Educators, Parents, and Communities by Corwin Press is now available to the public. To be honest, never in a million years did I think a book cover would have my name on it as the author. But the fact remains, the book can now be ordered and I truly hope people can be inspired by at least one of the many resources and stories I shared.
There is no doubt that we live in one of the most exciting times in education. Which is why it's incumbent upon us to leverage the power of avaiable technology and virtual tools to activate stakeholder engagement. Students, teachers, administrators, board members, parents, and community members must stay connected with the plethora of tools available. It's no longer an option to stand idly by and disregard the amazing things going on in and outside of our schools.
I truly hope that you can take the time to check out my new book. I also hope that you are touched by at least one of the stories I share and somehow put it into action in your own school. The more stakeholders are connected and contribute, the more students will thrive.
