The Teachers Matter Book Club for your Professional Reading and Learning...

Join us for our next book!

Join our community of educators exploring texts and themes around teaching and learning - philosophically, practically, professionally and personally.

Great for individuals to dig deeper into your reading or for whole staff development. Whether you are an experienced, beginning, relieving or returning teacher this is a great way to build up your professional reading in achievable chunks.

HOW IT WORKS: We send you the book and each week you will receive a reading guide with questions, links and thoughts to consider.  On Wednesday nights* NZT we chat on a private Facebook Group. 

Reading one chapter a week, alongside the reading guide and an online FB discussion means it is achievable within your busy week. Plus the discussions serve to deepen your knowledge as you share ideas, thoughts and actions with like-minded teachers.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to join the live chat, you can access it throughout the week as the conversations often continues
