What it means to be a teacher: the reality and gift of teaching
The stories, anecdotes, humor, and insights found in this book capture what it means to be a teacher. The book begins with common encounters that are the hallmark of the new-teacher experience, but continues into equally entertaining tales that come with years of working with students, parents, staff, faculty, and administrators. What it Means to Be a Teacher mirrors a teacher's playful sense of irony and a deep appreciation of the old wisdom about feeling "the impact of the great, occasional and accidental joy" which comes with teaching. Whether a teacher, principal, or administrator, readers will relate to the profound sense of what it means to be a teacher.
