A book of poetry and other short pieces with introductions. It is chicken soup for the complete idiots who need a survival guide because they are dummies who are teachers. From a teacher who has taught for over a decade in a mean suburban high school, readers will learn how to stand and deliver in the blackboard jungle as their dangerous minds in the breakfast club lean on me and the dead poets society while waiting for superman in the race to the top with no child left behind.
The book should be required reading for all new teachers as they seek advice for the future, all current teachers as they seek confirmation someone understands them, and for all former teachers as they seek affirmation of a career well done.
If you are or were a teacher, read the book. If you know teachers and don't understand why they always want to talk about teaching, read the book. If you don't know any teachers and want to understand them in less than 50 pages, read the book. If you want to know what's happened to education without watching a documentary paid for by a political party, read the book.
