This book was given to me by my mentor teacher as a parting gift after my time in her classroom came to an end. I love this book, and have reread parts of the book several times during my first year as a teacher. I highly recommend to new and seasoned teachers who want to review the reasons for why they chose, and love, one of the hardest careers on earth!

In addition to the book, I was watching a DVD of a conference she gave with some teachers where they discussed these issues, so it was really interesting overall.
