Our Goal . . .

The goal of this book is to help classroom educators maintain a positive attitude toward their careers, so they can employ the skills and stamina to become what our country needs … superior teachers. Information is presented within a fun fishing framework, with cartoons to enhance the text and hook the reader. True stories are scattered throughout the book, along with interactive exercises and thought-provoking quotes.  The book provides a fresh approach to topics such as: communication, classroom diversity, discipline, curriculum, parent/teacher conferences, learning styles, and self-survival.  Our hope is that you will enjoy your career as much as we have enjoyed ours. When you look back, we hope you will be happy and proud knowing that you have had the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of each of your students. We love teaching and want you to love it too!
