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.

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.

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.
