This book really inspires you to think outside of the box and think about what a teacher needs to do to spark the desire for his/her students to want to learn and ask for more, despite what any laws or school board mandates a teacher must do in a short school day. This book gives a great perspective into a teacher's life and a puts a new dance in your step to push forward and reclaim or maintain your passion for teaching.
