New teacher mentoring programs would be an ideal place for many of the suggested activities. Weaving in the life experiences of the author, creates interest and provides the reader with a sense that putting the habits in place is very possible." -Kay Lovelace Taylor, Principal Associate, KLT & Associates "This book will appeal to teachers, administrators, school board members, and those studying to be educators.
