From the Author
This book comes from my teacher heart to teachers around the world.
The first half of my teaching career was so overwhelming and frustrating to me. It was nothing as I had imagined when I used to play school all summer long in my backyard as a child. I feel that I was called to be a teacher, but when I got my first classroom things went downhill- FAST.
After several years and failed attempts to work myself into feeling better, I decided to stop the madness. I knew if I was going to stay in the profession I was called to I had to make a change. I decided to go inside of myself and figure out how to make what I believed was right and wonderful about teaching mesh with all the crud I was dealing with on a daily basis in my classroom.
Bingo! This is where the answers were. The truth was inside the whole time. After teaching the second half of my career being authentically, joyfully, successfully me I knew I had to share how the steps I used to make this transformation with teachers all over the world.
You are not alone, everyone feels the way you do. Take my book, my life, my experience, these steps and move yourself back to the joy in teaching you dreamed of when you first knew you wanted to be a teacher.

As I read "How to Be a Great Teacher," I took notes and ACTIVELY read. I realized that I am not alone in the overwhelming stress I feel at times. I also learned how to deal with that in a positive way that will help me grow as a teacher. Loved it and giving a copy to my new-teacher friend!

And at the same time she is real, she doesn't sugar coat anything; she writes and speaks honestly to the challenges of being a teacher in today's world of standardized testing, dwindling resources, and red tape.
If you want to learn how to go from being a good teacher to a great teacher, read this book. Wynn Godbold will help you go from being stressed out and burned out, to feeling in alignment with your true mission of serving, teaching, and educating the leaders of tomorrow.
