After watching the documentary "A Touch of Greatness," about elementary school teacher Albert Cullum, I went looking for his books and borrowed "Push Back the Desks" from my local library. The book has enhanced and heightened my respect for Albert Cullum as someone who made love and respect for the children he taught the first order of business. What followed from that is simply wonderful. I highly recommend the documentary and the book. What fun to be in Albert Cullum's class with education as it should be - always - a joy!
