    He hit the nail on the head!

    I read this book in preparation for a 'What great teachers do differently' conference in Little Rock, Arkansas. I throughly enjoyed Mr. Whitaker's view on a variety of different educational issues, and I really like the way he makes the reader feel, as if he were reading your mind. It was humorous and I was constantly saying in my mind 'I know, I know!' Overall, it really made me think of what I could be doing differently in my classroom to better my students and myself.

    Worth the Read

    While this book isn't presenting any "Earth-shattering" insight into what makes a great teacher, the specifics and the examples are relevant and applicable for even the novice teacher.
    As an administrator, it's a nice "refresher" book to read before beginning those classroom observations and conversations with faculty about the things that assist in classroom success beyond command of their subject matter.
