If you are a teacher give yourself a terrific present,
This review is from: The First Days of School: How to Be an Effective Teacher (Paperback)
This book should be given out to every teacher. I have been in education for 11 years now. I picked this book in my 6th year. What a resource. I have read dozens of educational books and attened who knows how many inservices and college classes focusing on education but this book, is by far the most useful. Every year, before school starts I reread this book. Every time I take from it something new. What this book shares is not so much a rescipe for sucess but instead a positive attitue that so often so hard to find in education. Your read this book and you can't help but be fired up. You can't wait to set your classroom up, you can't wait to meet your new students, you can't wait to teach.
