Format: Paperback
This book involves twenty-five short stories about the first year of teaching. The stories range from emotional, to triumph, to sad. There was a great deal of positives highlighted while the realism of teaching was not lost. Most of the teachers seemed to be English teachers as would prompt the writing of stories. One particularly meaningful short story was about a teacher that found hardships not within his classroom, but among his fellow colleagues, towards him. One teacher hit home with a remark on feeling resentful of the students because he was working so hard, and they didn't appreciate how hard he was working. He finally learned to give more responsibility and freedom to his students to provide a happy environment for all. A great read for me, as a first year teacher.

This book was an excellent book for anybody that is interested in becoming a teacher or anyone that has concerns of being a first year teacher. I am going into education and have often wondered what it would be like the first year as a new teacher. This book is several stories about the experiences of first year teachers and they encounter everything you can think of and they all tell how they handled their situations. Very good book and it was very helpfull to me knowing that everyone has concerns and everyone has a different experience.

If you plan to teach inner city students or special education then this book may be of interest to you. The sad truth was that the victories won by teachers in this book were not that their students learned anything, but that the teachers made some emotional breakthrough. I'm sorry but if the best teachers out there are no more than undegreed student counselors then the future of this country is in big trouble.
