This guide focuses on subjects teachers do not learn in school, giving first-year-teachers practical tips to help them get over their jitters and find the confidence they need to succeed in the classroom. This handbook, which includes anecdotes from the author about his own experiences, aims to inspire teachers. As the author writes, “The difficulty of teaching and the abuse the teaching profession suffers, coupled with the greatness of the goals of teaching, make this profession one of the last noble professions in our society.”
A Class Act, published by Dog Ear Publishing, covers more than just classroom activities as it also delves into how teachers can successfully market themselves and make educational bureaucracy work for them. The author, a seasoned classroom veteran, offers suggestions on everything from how to get organized at the start of the school year to managing discipline problems, curbing cheating and “teacher triage,” starting class on time by effectively managing students who swarm around the teacher’s desk before class. The book, written in a conversational style, rings with an authenticity only someone truly dedicated to teaching our country’s youth could achieve.
