Teaching Again brings back the human aspect of the teacher. Every reader has had days filled with unpredictable success, and days where crawling back in bed seems like the only option. Believe it or not, teachers do too! You will laugh out loud as you read what goes through Tom's mind, and you will tear up as you understand how invested Tom is in each of his student's education.
Tom's passion truly shines as he examines the very essence of teaching. Once you begin reading, Teaching Again, I promise you will not be able to set it down!
