As educators we are always looking for good material and strategies to share that will help our parents (the first responders) and teachers be more effective in the life of a child. Each child is special and unique, so we try to find educational tools to address all learning styles.
This morning, I stumbled upon a site/company that I had forgotten about. I utilized some of Zondervan‘s products in the classroom many moons ago and somehow I forgot how positive some of their products were for students of all ages.
Zondervan has company values that promote positive character development…refreshing! At Unlock the teacher, we are all about promoting the good…good in ourselves and others; we love this list of values that Zondervan promotes.
Integrity — We maintain high ethical and moral standards in speech and in personal and professional conduct.
Initiative — We are willing and empowered to proactively contribute to the success of the company, its customers, and other employees.
Excellence — We give our personal best.
Innovation — We seek out new possibilities in every area and embrace ground-breaking change that adds value.
Respect — We have as much consideration for the personal and professional worth and dignity of others as we do for ourselves.
Accountability — We are responsible for our own actions and answerable to others.
At a time where children, parents and teachers are all trying to find words of inspiration, I am thrilled to offer our readers a look at Zondervan. If you are like me and new them in the early 90’s, I encourage all stakeholders in the life of a child to take a moment and revisit this company. Zondervan offers book for all ages…us adults too 🙂
Little People age 6 and under

I just recommend you visit site and explore! Zonderkids~Inspiring Young Lives
I am a firm believer that as educators we need to speak the language of the 21st century in order to be effective in our craft. This is a great site to explore eBooks (you know we are huge fans of eBooks here at Unlock the Teacher) and educational apps. Hope you visit this positive company’s site and comment on what you think of recommendation(s).
May we continue to seek knowledge in all things,
