5.0 out of 5 starsA must read!!!
Reviewed in the United States on July 10, 2019
What a delightful book! Brent Coley's storytelling feels welcome, and comfortable (like sitting down with an old friend). He has a way of sharing both sides of the coin in such a manner that you feel that you are on the journey with him. He shares practical strategies to keep in mind during our daily interactions with children, parents, and staff. He touches on several strategies, we as educators know, but definitely need to come back to and circle around again more often. I would encourage all, especially new teachers, to get and read this book before setting foot in the classroom again this Fall. I love when a book provides hands-on ways to start making a difference as soon as you are done reading!

Brent’s words were honest and truthful as he wrote, Eduinfluence, by sharing his stories of success and improvements. So many of Brent’s stories are similar to all teachers from encouraging that one student to be successful to being encouraged by peers. If you are a beginning teacher or a veteran, Brent’s book is a must read as it connects your personal stories to his leaving you something to think about. Keep the conversation going on Twitter.
5.0 out of 5 starsChicken soup for a teacher's soul
Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2019
"Chicken Soup for the Soul" and a great reminder why we put in long hours and lay awake at night thinking about our students. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At times we need to be reminded to teach to the whole child and that we are the lucky ones that get to benefit by having our students in our lives.

I HIGHLY recommend this book!
I dug into this book and immediately had all the feels! I laughed. I cried. I was challenged to think and challenged to reflect; I sat and contemplated how my new awareness of #EDUinfluence would transform my own actions. This book is a labor of love and the author, Brent Coley, has so many incredible pieces of wisdom to share. He writes candidly about his own experiences as an educator and the lessons he's learned along the way. This book really will open your eyes to see how your own actions, conversations, interactions and more will leave a lasting impact on your immediate learning community and beyond. As you read this book, you will be inspired to make changes, take risks, and do incredible things...and use your #EDUinfluence in positive ways!
