The First Days of School,
This review is from: The First Days of School: How to Be an Effective Teacher, 4th Edition (Paperback)
After teaching in the public schools for over 20 years, I came upon this book. I wished I had read it before my first day of teaching. This book has changed my life - really. After going to countless workshops, graduate ed. classes and inservices, I still did not know many of these practical, time-tested techniques of teaching and classroom management and often felt that college had not prepared me for this job. I am no longer counting the years to retirement, I am excited every day to teach my wonderful 6th & 7th graders!

Thank you for your review! As a first year teacher, I too, feel that my university program did not prepare me enough for classroom management (typically it was only given while in the field on my field observation forms, or during seminar). That is one area I am really lacking in, and one friend of mine who went through the same program suggested this book. I look forward to reading it before school starts!
