What are the qualities that make for the most effective teachers? Are there life lessons to be learned for all of us? Life Lessons: Reflections on the Art of Teaching is a book that takes a fresh look at teaching as the most rewarding as well as the most demanding of the creative arts. With wit and wisdom, the author draws the reader into his own special world from the opening pages, presenting his thought-provoking ideas in a way that will both touch your heart and stimulate your mind. Drawing upon the experience of over twenty-five years, Al Perry presents his message in a conversational style that serves as its own best evidence that teaching can be a creative art and that learning can be an act of joy. As he writes in the introduction, "There are, indeed, life lessons to be learned for all of us."
