Saving Our Pennys Saving Our Pennys by Roy Dimond and Jeff Leitch, is a tale of redemption while finding our life guides and mentors in the least expected places.

I loved this book. Beautifully inspirational, and it speaks to us at a level we can all understand - our jobs, and how to rise above the the bureaucracy. A young teacher is experiencing burnout far too soon. This book is about his journey from burnout to simple joy. An engaging read.
