This is my reading list since starting the website in 2015. I believe in reading a range of topics within and outside of education. Some of the books have opened new lines of thought and debate, whereas others challenge my views on teaching and leadership. In all cases, this is my educational reading journey (so far) that is supporting my personal development.
