I love this anthology! It is a great teacher gift! I also happened to be the author of the lead story in it! Enjoy this inspirational read!
I love books like this. Books with all sorts of stories about teaching. When I have doubt that I can be a teacher, that I can deal with the hard things that will come with this job...I just need to remember to pick up one of these books, read one of the stories, and be reminded of why I'm doing this.
So, I got this for 25 cents at a used book sale, and figured as a teacher who is frustrated and burned out with "the system," it was worth a shot. And it was, I suppose. It's kind of an overdose of sappy and saccharine stories, and I felt like all of the stories were edited in such a way that no one writer had an individual voice. It seemed like they all came from the same person (even though I know they didn't). But, a few of the stories in there left an impression on me, and it was a nice brea ...more
well, the book had me in tears and laughing. I am very glad to have picked it up at the booksale. it reminded me of all the good things of becoming a teacher. although, what really touched me was seeing how teachers who were compassionate were the ones who were loved the most. as a new teacher, the old ones sometimes make you feel guilty of being friendly and caring for the students. I am really glad this is not the actual case in real life classrooms.
Much like the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books, I am enjoying this as inspiration to be the best teacher I can be when we return in September. I enjoy reading books like this in the summer - gets me rejuvinated!
Basically a pedagogical version of Chicken Soup For the Soul. A bit too saccharine at times but ideal for those times when you need a sentimental pick-me-up.
This was a good sappy book full of heartwarming stories about teachers. I enjoyed it, and made me think of my impact on my students.
my most fave book as of now.
most of the selections got me teary-eyed after reading..
it makes me proud to be a mentor.
Another collection of sweet stories with Teachers as the focus.

Wonderful essays that reminded me of situations I've encountered on my 30+ years of teaching.
This book is full of cute little stories that are uplifting, funny and sometimes sad.....
