I loved this witty and clever way to present the most practical ways to teach in a class. Read like a novel yet instructive and reflective for me. Every teacher should read this and help children thrive in the classroom!

I absolutely loved this book as a teacher. I have been in the shoes of the teachers in this book, and I relate very well. The principles work. I wish I had read this my first year teaching. It is an easy read that is still very insightful.

Teachers, you need to read this book! Though it's written about the faculty and students in a middle school, I found it imminently relatable to my experience as an elementary school teacher. The author is a former administrator, now returned to teaching full time. I heard him speak at a teachers conference and found him well-spoken and consistent with the principles espoused in his book.

Enjoyed seeing the theory demonstrated through the characters. Saw bits of myself in each of them! The Cliff Notes are helpful reminders for me as I work to further develop my own classroom culture. Definitely recommend this for all who teach.

The principles in this book are wonderful - easy to understand, and general enough to be widely applicable. The stories used to illustrate the ideas... were difficult to get through, but instructive if you can get past the flowery, sappy language. I will be implementing these principles in my own classroom!
