Skip Overstreet, a retired educator with a thirty-one-year career as a teacher, coach, athletic director, assistant principal, and principal from a small town in Tennessee, has completed his new book “They Call Me Mr. O: A Common-Sense Approach to Education and Life”: a collection of poignant teachable moments gleaned over decades of interacting with students and parents from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds.

Mr. Overstreet shares, “Travel with me through my thirty-one-year career as a teacher, coach, and principal while I share some short stories that are often hilarious, sad, teachable moments, and some that will tug at your heartstrings (you can’t miss the story of the little kindergarten girl I proposed to at graduation). ‘They Call Me Mr. O: A Common-Sense Approach to Education and Life’ will show how using common sense, which may seem unconventional at times, and forming true relationships with kids, parents, and teachers can result in such a positive atmosphere and will create a culture that will yield to success, even after you’re gone.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Skip Overstreet’s reflections on a lengthy and consequential career in education underscore the long-lasting impact of teachers on the lives of the children and families they serve.

Readers who wish to experience this touching and often-humorous work can purchase “They Call Me Mr. O: A Common-Sense Approach to Education and Life” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Kobo, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
