I had to try it for myself!

Flip Your Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams
Flipping the classroom has transformed our teaching practice. We no longer stand in front of our students and talk at them for 30 to 60 minutes at a time. This radical change has allowed us to take on a different role with our students…we realize we could never go back to teaching in the traditional manner."
I had to see for myself how well the flipped classroom model worked, and my experience has transformed both my own teaching approach and the learning experiences of my students. They love using technology, so lessons became more personal and individualized. Students were finally learning at a pace that was appropriate for them.
Nothing brings joy to my heart than seeing more students really understand math! It's why I have continued to teach for 20 years. Flipping allows me to reach even more students, engage them, and fill the gaps in their learning, and it is thrilling to watch them making progress. The following from Bergmann and Sams’ book speaks volumes:

You are an excellent spokesperson for the flipped classroom. I can't wait to see your TILTNET site I'm sure you will inspire everyone who reads it. You once wrote about wanting to help teachers go back to the days when they first started teaching and find that spark that we all once had. That is an admirable goal and your staff will be the better for it. You have sparked and turned into a full fledged flame. :)
