You may have read books about teaching before, but you've never read one as honest, gritty and down to earth as this one. Sara Snowball has a unique perspective on teaching at the elementary level because she has worked at disadvantaged schools and also well-funded schools, enabling her to see not only the socioeconomic differences, but its impact on society and our world as well. Students show up with all sorts of issues: anxiety, ADHD, neglect, poor nutrition, early onset puberty, abuse, and more. This teacher speaks candidly about how she deals with it and divulges her creative ways to reach every student while keeping herself sane.
Every teacher who needs solutions, everyone thinking about being a teacher, and every parent should read this. It will show a picture of the reality of education that you will never get if you are not in the midst of it.
