Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text focuses on motivation for teaching and what the teaching life will entail—students, curriculum, financing, ethics, governance, etc. . . . It is very readable and focuses on the current state of education today. It also has a central theme of why students might be choosing to teach which is very appropriate for our first year students."Melanie Felton, College of Saint Mary
