Overview

Teaching, the Hardest Job You'll Ever Love! is a realistic guide that can help the high school teacher and community. It includes ways to maintain one's health, how to balance one's personal and school life, and how to interact in a better way. In order to become successful, it is important for high school teachers to include personal fulfillment so that students will ultimately learn not only the subject matter but also how to be self-sufficient and self-accountable and how to learn with others.
