Yet none of this averted his resolve to equip his students with a quality curriculum or his best effort at terrific teaching. Paranormal classroom happenings? Not a chance. Tuna fish and human hair sandwiches? No way. A bursting bladder? Think again.
Instead, he found himself developing lifelong friendships with staff members, an intrinsic feeling of accomplishment through helping students succeed, and even experiencing romance in the classroom. (It may not be what you are thinking!)
This book is what teaching in a public classroom is really like, without any excuses or apologies, and without wearing the rosy lenses of societal stereotypes. It’s a frank look inside the mind and classroom of one rather insignificant, average, individual teacher. He struggled to be the best he could be, sometimes succeeding, and sometimes failing in unimaginable fashion.
