Letters to a teacher is an insightful collection of letters addressed to teachers in general written by Sam Pickering. They tell the stories not only of experiences that he had in the classroom while teaching, but also what he learned as a teacher throughout his years not only teaching in a high school, but as a college professor as well. It was a well thought out collaboration of writing, and truly got the message across that as a teacher you have the ability to change a student’s life. It may not happen with every student, especially because some may not have an interest in your class, but there are some out there who are changed by the words of a teacher. I chose to read this book to go along with an Ethnography project in English class. I am researching teachers that educate in a specialized field, and why they chose that career path rather than work in their specialized field. This book assisted with my project because it gave me insight as to what being a teacher is really like. It allowed me to experience the joys of being a teacher and see what you can really get out of it. If anyone has had thoughts about being a teacher but needs some reassurance, this book would definitely be a good choice. It will fill you in on all the perks of being a teacher, but also be honest with you about how your experience will not be all fun and games. It gave me the chance to experience the joys and the sorrows of the education system first hand, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in education!
