I am a first year teacher teaching in an inner-city school. I was struggling with all the things that Angela has in her book and was just looking for someone to give me advice. I first found the book by googling different things on the internet and finding her website. I can honestly say that now that I have her book she is like my teaching GOD. I carry this book EVERYWHERE with me and literally feel as though it is my teaching bible, helping me and giving me advice when ever I need it. I love that I can either read the book front to back (which I already have) or just flip to a relevant section. I have literally even used it with different topics I have talked to my kids about (fighting) where her way of explaining it just seems so simple and clear. My students now know that when it is independent reading time that I will be on the carpet with this book. Teachers at school have even started to ask for the name so that they can purchase the book. Literally I can not stop raving about how AMAZING this book is. BUY IT!!!! and then go on her website and take advantage of the downloads you can get if you bought the book. You will be sooo happy you did!

As an alternate route elementary teacher in a chaotic, sometimes dangerous South Bronx school, this book has been a lifesaver for me. I found Ms. Powell's website first and started spreading the word. All the things that nobody teaches you how to do, yet are so integral in making your classroom a success, are discussed in great detail. As Ms. Powell has spent several years teaching in high poverty classrooms, her concrete strategies for implementing routines and procedures and ensuring an effective environment are dead on. Also, for anyone who struggles with organization in their classroom, Ms. Powell gives so many practical organizational strategies(with pictures). Ms. Powell's students are very lucky and I know this book is going to be instrumental in giving me the power to have a more successful year for me and my students!
