Forget Oprah’s book list, check out what the Edge staff is reading!
The curriculum staff at the Edge reads all the texts used in our courses and many more that don’t make the cut. We believe strongly in professional development which is why we create fantastic courses for educators; we also want to continue our own professional development and one way we do this is through all staff and small group book studies.
The following titles are some of our favorites.
