I received this book as a gift. As a teacher, I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I opened it. Since it was mostly contributed to by Teachers of the Year, would it feel like it had been processed too much by educational bureaucracy? Would it be inspiring? Would it be boring? Thankfully, the book turned out to very enjoyable overall and a very inspiring read for teachers.

Some of the stories in the book are downright heartbreaking, and one in particular ended on a flat note without the customa

Disclaimer:I'm full, no more soup for me!

Well, yet another spoon full of warm chicken soup! I did really enjoy some of the stories. The ones about the new teachers and all the mistakes they made in their first teaching post were especially great and not to mention super reassuring and funny! Since i'm only just testing the waters of this field,the personal stories warmed me up quite nicely. It only took baby-steps for these teachers to make a huge difference. The stories have made me realize th

Chicken Soup: Teacher Tales is full of amazing stories sent in by teachers and students. What I Have enjoyed the most about these short stories and poems is that you can really hear voice while reading all these passages. Each story sent is unique in it's own way and each writer has a unique style. While I was reading all of these stories I could really hear these people talking through the events they wrote about. These are one of the book that really makes you laugh, cry, and smile page after ...more
My mother is a teacher and so someone gave her this book. I had never read and of the chicken soups primarily because I was told I would cry my eyes out, but one day I just kind of picked this up without meaning to and before I realized it I was reading it. I liked it a lot too.
The stories from this book helped me remember my idealism from when I first embarked on my path in teaching, and gave me courage to continue. (Yes, that was sappy; it was pretty deliberate. If you don't like sappy, find another book.)
Loved the book. It just reminds me of all the great reasons one gets into teaching. Its okay with me that I will never get rich from my job, I feel rich in every way that counts!
A wonderful book to read. A great reminder of why the teaching profession is a great and important one. I recommend this book to EVERYONE especially teachers.
Quick stories, inspiring anecdotes, perspective...
This book is truly a delight to have around. I have re-read stories. Reminds me why I teach!
I am constantly picking up this book and reading different passages since I bought it several years ago.
