This book will touch you to the core of your being as you learn how John came to his calling as a teacher. Life leads us in the path we should go. Join John as he struggles with his inner battles--his cycle of gaining and losing confidence as his demon took control--on his own journey and discovers the little clues along the way that helped him make the decisions that ultimately changed his life and that of others. He looked within himself and at the advice from family and friends to find his way. Words of encouragement helped him stave the demon of doubt. He tells of his successes with students who reached out to him after he was no longer their teacher. So, not only did he teach his students, but he learned from them as well. He provides great insight into what makes a good teacher. We all deserve to have a teacher who so inspired us. I had mine. I hope you've had yours.
