*I am a contributor to this collection* I remember reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books as a teen. My mom loved them and often shared her favorite stories. This specific edition pays homage to all the teachers out there who work to mold young minds and do what they can in all different types of schools. From districts without basic resources like books and pencils, to the teacher who worked to give a Special needs Student the encouragement they needed, this book is packed with love.
