Editorial Reviews


"This book offers real world problems and solutions. Many teachers, especially those who don’t make it to the 5-year mark, don’t understand why teaching is so difficult. They don’t know the right questions to ask or changes to make. This is a down-to-earth, well-written, enjoyable read that would be beneficial to all teachers."
-- Lyneille Meza, Director of Data & Assessment

"With unique, compassionate, and insightful resources like this, based on years of solid teaching experience, there is real hope for the future of education. Whereas many educators only want to showcase their successes, Pariser warmly shares both her successes and failures. In doing this, she cultivates a more comprehensive understanding of best practices while helping educators. A lovely bonus is that you′ll also get to enjoy some hilarious classroom anecdotes that are relatable to any teacher. And since she bares herself for the benefit of the reader, you might also find yourself tearing up at the lengths Pariser went through to truly empower her students. 

Pariser helps educators cultivate strong student leaders via positive classroom communities. Her book is rich with entertaining action points for virtually every type of educational setting. With educational experience that ranges from teacher of the year, to university program instructor to teaching teachers in Botswana via her Fulbright Scholarship program, Pariser′s book has something for everyone."
-- Andrew Rossillo, Content Writer, Editor, and Manager

"This is a "how to book" for teachers who have a growth mindset and want to become the best teacher possible. Serena Pariser shares her wisdom and experience in a helpful and reflective way to make us all better educators. This book will help you become the teacher every student deserves!"

-- Cindy Corlett, Middle School Administrator, Parker, CO

"This book gives lots of teacher tips and practical ideas for teachers and future teachers. I also enjoy that readers have an opportunity to reflect on what they read after each section. This would give my students the opportunity to practice ′reflection′ and reflecting on readings."

-- Natalie Young, Ed. D.
