Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is great! As a teacher, I enjoyed reading the tips that were given and learned many survival secrets! I would recommend this book to ALL teachers!
The book does provide an overabundance of great tips on how to be far more effective, even if you've been in the classroom for years, as I have. But I didn't realize how much more I'd enjoy myself during the process. I highly recommend it.
