Perfect, very informational and interesting! Mar 18, 2009
I originally bought this book for a class, but I know now that I would not be able to start a teaching career with out it. It will be useful to me as a teacher, or as a parent to children in the public system. Great condition and wonderful all around!
Christian Teachers in Public Schools UNITE! Oct 5, 2008
This book is a must read for any teacher who teaches in the public school and wants to "hang on" to their Christian values. In ways that only God can show you, you will be able to convey that love of Christ to the hundreds of children who come your way. No words.....just the love! It encouraged me and assured me that there is great satisfaction in reaching out with the hands of Jesus.
