Everyday urban educators work under greater bureaucratic constraints; they teach more students a day, and do so while lacking basic materials.
At the same time their students often bring into the classroom the social problems that plague their inner city communities. New teachers in urban schools leave within the first five years. Often more than not they are frustrated and burned out.
First Aid For First Year Teachers offer practical tips on how to engage, empower, and guide young people on a path to success in a global society.
This book is geared towards new and seasoned educators who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children and youth.
