Editorial Reviews

Jennifer Baadsgaard
“This book is a great resource on the important, changing roles of teachers within the classroom and administrative support within the school. A great read for district and campus leaders who want to motivate teachers, as well as for teachers who want to motivate students.”
Maudest Rhue-Scott
“The research and data presented in this book lay the foundation for the children of today and the challenges they encounter.”
Alan M. Blankstein
"The passion that comes through when hearing Stephen Peters speak is echoed in this call to capturing the students who are most often marginalized. Using an array of statistics and personal observations, Peters calls upon the heart and the conscience of the educator when asking you to 'bring your best' every day into the classroom.This bookcontinually comes back to the relationships formed between students and staff, and to this end Peters provides a continuous drumbeat of advice. "
