    Calling All Teachers, Professors, Students and Parents!! Finally the truth about education!!!!

    Finally a book that speaks to the truth about the obstacles, heartaches and triumphs that teachers face in the classroom everyday. With all the nonsense about testing, NCLB and politics, here is a book that honors teachers and most importantly, the children in their care.
    Colleges should have this as required reading, and the issues this book brings to light should be part of the curriculum. Too often young men and women leave college, enter the classroom and feel like they have been so ill prepared for the reality of teaching. We lose potentially amazing teachers simply because they felt unprepared and overwhelmed.
    Be prepared to laugh and cry throughout this book as you are led on a journey from the first day of school, through a typical roller coaster year, to the triumph of graduation. You will celebrate children who overcame insurmountable objects to achieve success and have a new found respect for the profession of teaching after reading, Teaching Hope.

    Hope is in reach

    I'm not a teacher but reading this books makes me want to be one. The stories these teacher go through is amazing. To think that everyday teachers go into a classroom and do so much good for our youth is unbelieveable. I think every teacher, student and parent should read this book to get a better understanding of the education system and how teachers go above and beyond the job title.

    Hope is alive and well and teachers around the country are determined to spread it!

    A fascinating look into the realities of our educational system. Teachers from all 50 states, Canada, U..S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico share their experiences in the classroom. From the big city to remote rural locations the challenges and the successes are much the same. It is a book that you can peruse and find stories that you can connect with or that surprise you. A great read.
