A wonderful thing about the book is that it's not just theory; LouAnne Johnson gives practical suggestions and I have used many of them, nearly word for word. And let me tell you, it has paid me back, over and over, in spades. The connections and relationships I have made with my kids, and a huge suitcase full of notes and letters telling me so.....that is a priceless reward that I will treasure to my last day on earth, and this book contributed to that.
When I opened the first page and read a thank you note to me just for what I do every day, I felt validated, despite being in dire contract negotiations with our school board. Teachers often feel as though people don't appreciate them, but everything LouAnne Johnson says here makes me know that some people "get it."
Her humanist approach to teaching is one that I had to develop over a couple of decades... How do you not get into power struggles with your students? How do you deal with trauma and anger and more? What I have learned through experience, she addresses in a no-nonsense way that does not feel preachy or prescriptive. It's like having a discussion over coffee with a trusted friend.
She addresses all the insane advice I was given as a new teacher, including "Don't smile till after Christmas," "Don't ever let them know you don't know," "Don't ever let them talk back to you." This is all advice that I gratefully accepted and just as gratefully threw away when I realized they didn't work.
This book would be a great textbook for preservice teachers, for all those going through alternative certification programs that take professionals and throw them into the classroom, for seasoned teachers who need some validation... It's an easy read. Her multiple anecdotes--including how a horse man's approach to "breaking" horses could be instrumental in winning over students--keep it relevant. Questions at the end of each chapter are meant for self-reflection more than skimming for information, as many textbooks ask.
Teaching is about being human. It's about reflecting. It's about becoming a trusted guide. And that's what this book is all about.
