A junior high school principal once said, “Good teachers are born teachers, not made into them.” This story shows otherwise. It is about a little boy who at first hates school, but who with the influence of nurturing teachers, supportive friends, and strong role models, grows to love the classroom and chooses it as a career. Included are entertaining descriptions of how his personal life affected that career; colorful accounts of the most memorable students, teachers, and administrators; candid critiques of education reform efforts; and retrospective analysis of how the teaching process worked and didn’t work. These sketches, although sometimes surprising, all come straight from the heart.

Reviews & Comments

"Very interesting book written by a person who defied the odds, pursued his dream of being a good teacher, fought hard to climb the ladder of higher education and never became stagnant in his career."
~ S.J. Plymouth, IN

"If you grew up in a small town, you will enjoy this book. Large school or small school, you will relive your educational experience as you read."
