Jules on Schools:

Teaching, Learning, and Everything in Between

by Julia M. Williams

A Midwest Book Award Finalist!

This timely collection of essays addresses the rewarding work of supporting schools and nurturing the learning of schoolchildren today. Author and educator Julia M. Williams is an Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth, where she prepares tomorrow’s teachers.

In writing this caring, funny, and lyrical commentary, she draws from a deep well of professional knowledge as well as the personal experience of having raised six children as a mom and a stepmom.

Beginning with the idea that all of us are trying to do the right thing for kids, she shares with readers some of the wonders that are being discovered about how children learn, and she illuminates how schools and parents can use what the research is telling us. As Williams says in the book, “We all need to learn and grow and go forward in our roles, holding hands and reaching out to embrace the opportunity that surrounds us and the children we love.”

Dr. Williams recently received the 2013 Minnesota Excellence in Education Award. The award notes her unparalleled leadership in promoting and advancing excellence in education.
