"Teaching One Moment at a Time explores the relational implications of teaching, including the teacher's countertransference, a phenomenon that is well known in psychotherapy but largely ignored in education. The book is the most sophisticated study of the ways in which writing teachers are centrally involved with their students. . . . To the question, 'What do students want?' the answer must be, 'A teacher like Dawn Skorczewski.'"―Jeffrey Berman, author of Empathic Teaching: Education for Life
"This book seems special and valuable to me not because of the practical suggestions (though there are some good ones), but because of the precious message I hear: 'Teaching will always bring up feelings of anxiety and unease, but at least I can offer you paths to a better more productive kind of anxiety and unease.' I need this message because I know I'll never feel satisfied or at peace about my teaching."―Peter Elbow, author of Writing Without Teachers

It's about how to BE in the classroom. Insecure new teachers (isn't that redundant?) will find it very useful. Lots of anecdotal experience backed up with reference to psych research.
