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.
Robertson also dives into current, relevant and somewhat hot-bottom issues of today's learning environment, namely, standardized testing, teachers' pay, and safe schools - topics for which he provides a well thought out opinion. Robertson does not stop his discussion about current issues here: he also discusses bullying, but does not limit this topic to student-on-student bullying by expanding it to the less discussed issue of teacher-on-student bullying and the potentially very negative effects that such behaviors by teachers might have on students.
The overall tenor of this book is Robertson's philosophy of teaching, which can be described as transformational, as sees himself a role model who might shape the lives of this students into the future by being a teacher who genuinely cares about his students by getting to know them and building trusting relationships with them in a classroom culture that promotes respect, cooperation and teamwork while focusing on each of this students' strengths to promote the best individual learning outcome possible.
The seasoned veteran teacher can get inspired by the words of this enthusiastic young teacher, and the new teachers fresh out of college will get helpful and humorous tips to keep their sanity as they venture into the world of education.
