You probably don't have to think very hard to recall a dedicated teacher who touched your life in a lasting way with encouragement and inspiration . . . teachers just have a way of knowing exactly what to do or say to help children and teens reach their highest potential. No wonder so many parents and kids are looking for a way to say "thank you" and return some of that inspiration. From the author of the best-selling Apples & Chalkdust comes a new collection of encouraging and insightful stories for teachers, Apples & Chalkdust #2. In this delightful new volume, veteran educator Vicki Caruana meets teachers right where they are, in the midst of flying chalkdust and papers to be graded. She provides refreshment and practical insights for embracing the challenges of teaching with renewed vigor and creativity.
