From Publishers Weekly
Cab drivers, governors, executives, literary agents and many others share recollections of their most inspiring educators in this collection edited by Boston Globe Washington bureau chief Shribman. The short quotations gathered in the book describe teachers of all kinds, from a leathery-faced golf instructor to a nuclear engineering professor at North Carolina State University, to a Long Island public school teacher who taught fifth-grade students Shakespeare and made them call him "Sir."

The concept is great but would write this on his report card: "David is capable but with more effort he could be exceptional".
It caused me to remember back to my own fifth grade teacher, who, upon completing the year, wrote me a quick note which encourages me to this day. You, too, will think about your kindergarten teachers and learning your letters, or the guy who taught you the software used in your job.
Shribman uses examples from celebs galore, but the important part is learning about the teachers who helped mold the leaders of today. Tomorrow's leaders are sitting in a third grade classroom across the world, and a great teacher is guiding him or her.
Teachers can read this and be encouraged and excited that what they do does matters. Students will read this and see that their teacher's unorthodox ways and persistence in teaching makes a difference.
I fully recommend "I Remember My Teacher: 365 Reminiscences of the Teachers Who Changed Our Lives" by David M. Shribman.
