“While focusing on the thread of connectivity, Kathryn Fishman-Weaver and Stephanie Walter have crafted a book that brings into focus the heart of all teaching—the need of humans to feel connected. This book shows how focusing on this principle allows us as educators to be effective and fulfilled, be it through in-person, online, or blended learning. The combination of exposition, teacher accounts, and reflection activities made this an enjoyable read and a valuable resource.”
