An inspiring handbook, enthusiastically embraced by teachers; with a new chapter

Every teacher can be a passionate teacher-one who engages young people in the excitement of learning and ideas-if teaching is not undermined by the ways we "do business" in schools. The Passionate Teacher draws on voices, stories, and successes of teachers in urban, suburban, and rural classrooms to help you become, and remain, a passionate teacher despite the obstacles. This edition includes a new chapter for teachers beginning their careers

This book really inspires you to think outside of the box and think about what a teacher needs to do to spark the desire for his/her students to want to learn and ask for more, despite what any laws or school board mandates a teacher must do in a short school day. This book gives a great perspective into a teacher's life and a puts a new dance in your step to push forward and reclaim or maintain your passion for teaching.
