I've used the activities in this book before with different audiences. This time is was with first semester university students just beginning a teacher education program. They really got into doing the reflections. For example, i'll long remember one person's response to the reflection about other people's reaction to their decision to become teachers. He recounted that his family has tried hard to dissuade him from entering the teaching profession, as the salaries are relatively low. However, he persisted because he wanted to be happy and teaching children was, he firmly believed, going to make him happy. After I heard him tell this story to his groupmate, I asked the groupmate to repeat the story to the class, who burst into applause when the story concluded. Of course, it remains to be seen how happy this teacher-to-be will be when he has his own class of children and when he tries to raise a family on a teacher's salary. Nonetheless, the 80 reflections in the easy-to-use book bring out crucial thoughts like these for pre- and in-service teachers. The book raises issues that busy teachers might not otherwise ever get around to thinking about. Thus, I would urge teacher educators to use this book in their courses, and urge teachers to refer back to it at periodic intervals in order to consider the arc of their careers and their thoughts about the profession.
