Industry Reviews

"This book offers real world problems and solutions. Many teachers, especially those who don’t make it to the 5-year mark, don’t understand why teaching is so difficult. They don’t know the right questions to ask or changes to make. This is a down-to-earth, well-written, enjoyable read that would be beneficial to all teachers."
