A note to young teachers or teachers to be: You must read this. This book has been my "cheat sheet" despite having worked as coach educator for 18 years. My relationship with kindergarteners has never been better, and my high schoolers have never worked so hard while having so much fun. You must read this book. You must visit his blog and interact with him and his fellow Weird Teachers because it will improve the life of every student you meet. As humorous and fun as this book is, it never forgets our job as educators, and it never stops inspiring.
While I'm not a teacher (Reason? Chapter 12 - Bodily Functions. PS. I laughed ridiculously hard. Out loud.), I do think that this book is easily passed from teacher, to parent, and visa versa, to inspire and motivate. I personally will be buying this for my kids' 3rd grade teacher in hopes that it inspires her as much as it did me.
As a new teacher in the profession, It was refreshing to read a veteran teachers commentary that was not about being under appreciated or telling me we need more time. This book just reminds us that trenches is a horrible reference because our classes are magical and a reflection of who we are. I enjoy his brief insights on multiple situations teachers find themselves in.
Doug remains positive and humorous throughout. I would love to attend staff meetings weekly with this author!
Many books are written by super teachers, but when reading them, we often see amazing qualities cannot be duplicated. The teachers who write those books have unlimited pools of energy, unlimited free time, and no spouse, significant other, or children. These people are so out of reach that they fail to captivate or inspire us.
Doug Robertson, however, is an ordinary (yet supercool) guy who does amazing things. He provides tons of great examples and ideas of things to do with classes. The book recounts his comic experiences (that's part of the fun of teaching, right?) and his setbacks. Doug Robertson discusses every possible teaching topic imaginable, and it is a great read from page one till the end. I can say with complete confidence: this book has helped make me a better teacher.
I recommend this to anyone in, or considering, the field of education.
