Review

"Are your students missing that twinkle of curiosity in their eyes? Are you beat down and wondering if your purpose vanished due to the evil spell of educational demands? Throughout the pages of this precious gem, Tisha Richmond vulnerably exposes how her zeal for teaching was disappearing before she began a miraculous, connected journey. She eloquently pens her rediscovery of mystery and wonder to make learning magical and wholeheartedly shares strategies and lessons to create a learning atmosphere with the intent to leave a legacy. You find the sparkle to enchant your students with engagement, and after reading this book, the hidden magic that has been buried deep within your soul will burst free and shine brightly for all within your realm of influence. Everything necessary to unlock the magic is right here; you need only to open the pages and begin your journey today."
--Tara M. Martin, educator, keynote speaker, and author of Be REAL

"Make Learning Magical by Tisha Richmond is the book I have been waiting for. The passion, innovation, and love for teaching and inspiring her students is so very evident from the introduction to the final pages. Tisha offers fun and easy-to-implement ideas no matter what subject or grade you teach. I guarantee you will be walking through the wardrobe and into Narnia for many years and lessons to come. Enjoy this book immensely; I sure did!"
--Adam Welcome, educator, author of Run Like a Pirate, & coauthor of Kids Deserve It! 


"Make Learning Magical combines the value of intentional whimsy, passion, and practical advice to instill the importance of student relationships, learning, ownership, and authenticity. Richmond uses personal and professional stories to show the power
that innovative teaching practices can bring to the classroom while weaving in a love for childhood memories and movies. Prepare to feel nostalgia for long ago and inspiration for your students' future as you read Make Learning Magical."

Tisha shares practical knowledge on how to make your classroom a more fun and inviting environment. She provides touching stories to punctuate her strategies and outlines simple and effective tasks to follow and transform your classroom. This book, with its collection of anecdotes and personal reflections, is one I will be sharing with new and veteran teachers alike. It is full of nuggets of silver, gold, and plenty of weighty glitter-- and enough culinary references for another book."
--Rodney Turner, virtual educator

"J.K. Rowling says, 'Something magical happens when you read a good book.' From page one, Tisha Richmond brings the reader into her classroom to show us many recipes for how to transform our classrooms into places of whimsy and fun. While I loved reading about her culinary arts students and the various challenges in which Tisha engages her students, I also appreciated her sharing her own personal learning journey. I found myself taking copious notes and forming brainstorming ideas to create my own classroom magic, as Tisha shares so many creative and practical examples and ideas which
can easily be applied to any context. This book is a must-read for educators in any role, teaching any subject!"

She hits home by showing us that when students are empowered as authentic learners, the magic truly lies within them--and it's the teacher's job to reveal that secret."
--Jarod Bormann, author of Professionally Driven

It is full of inspiration and reminders of the tremendous impact educators have in and out of the classroom, many of which we may never be aware. Tisha's love of learning, growing, and doing what's best for students is evident throughout the entire book. The personal stories from her own experiences as a student and her reflections as an educator remind us of the importance of sharing our stories, being mindful of our 'why,' and continuing to challenge ourselves as educators so we can provide authentic, engaging, and magical learning experiences for our students.
