Stories and Anecdotes to Lift You up Oct 25, 2008
From beginning to end, the wit and insight to teaching & students made this book an easy read about a very challenging undertaking. I appreciated the heartfelt writing about the perspective of teachers and likewise students. This book is now a great comfort to me as a teacher. It is worth the effort to discern a person's "learning curve" and engage them accordingly. Nice Read

A Story A Day Revitalizes the Soul Mar 5, 2008
I was a college professor of 19 years and have been a public school substiute since 09/05. Saw a copy in a public library and decided to get some food. Found myself turned out greatly by some stories, neutral on others and not touched at all on a few. But a great cookbook has some recipies for everyone. Putting myself into the shoes of each author I tried to sense the feelings in their soul. Each teacher and student spoke from the heart. Surely one must be moved when another bares their soul, especially dealing with the trials and tribulations of working with children of all ages, trying to encourage them to learn and grow.
One never knows when a few words or seemingly routine trivial actions will have a profound impact on at least one other person. Eleanor Rooosevelt said it was better to light just one little candle than stumble in the dark. Most teachers cited light at least one candle a term, regardless if they are teaching kindergarten or grade 12.
Let me share two here rather than send them in. The process of getting hired as a substitute teacher in many areas involves being interviewed and positively recommended for hire by a public school administrator. I went to my first interview perhaps not fully prepared psychologically. A person asked me some questions over a desk: I could not answer them in K-12 teaching terms, having only previously taught college. The end result found an administrator suggesting I never be hired as a substitute. This was devastating and unexpected. Calling a peer at the education office, I was advised to out right away and get another interview. The second time, I was a bit more loose psychologically. The interviewers were very friendly. Good rapport waa established. I left that school toward the end of the afternoon with a strong rcommendation to be approved as a fine substitute teacher. Within 24 hours there were two interviews with oppostite resultsn. Isn't Clark Kent also Superman.
I started as an elementary school substitute. After a few weeks I subbed at the high school that viewed me favorably. Leaving the administrative offices after subbing one day I encountered two young boys who were not older than third graders. They proudly greeted me with "Hello Dr. K."
I highly recommend this book and your feedback.
False advertising Feb 22, 2008
