I have read many books on teaching strategies and classroom management and this book is an easy read and most of all, it assures teachers that we all go through similar struggles sometimes. It tells us to keep it real with our students and allows you to better visualize a personal and unique approach to dealing with your students on a more meaningful and compelling level. Each chapter is streamlined and cuts to the chase.

Love this book. Good ideas to readily use. Have already used some of the techniques with some of my students and I have already connected with some of my more wary students. This book is an absolute gem.

After finishing what proved my most difficult year as a teacher, I decided I needed to re-think my approach and tweak my skills. Johnson is matter-of-fact, motivating, and hands-on common sense about the teaching profession. She, too, has had classes of students whose hunger for knowledge has been skeward by everyday poverty, violence, and apathy. I know that my classroom and my teaching strategies will be fine tuned and refreshed by end of August when classesstart up again. Thank you, LouAnne Jonhson!
