About the Book

25 stories of children from a teaching career spanning 40 years illustrate with humor and pathos the power of teaching with positive energy. Each child, and his individual circumstance, will help future and current teachers realize that an attitude of “failure is not an option” will create success for ALL children. It is easy to learn how to teach children to read, perform math problems, and write, but there are times when a student comes into a teacher’s classroom unready, unwilling, and unable to learn. These stories demonstrate how a teacher’s creativity and commitment to student success can turn the child into one who is ready, willing, and able to learn. Each chapter ends with a short list of suggestions for teachers of general and special education students.
