    I am trying to think of who would be a good audience for this book, but the list is short. It is not for anyone already in the education profession. There is no new information for them. It is not exciting enough for a teen thinking about an education career to read. It might be good for adults considering the education profession, but there are more exciting stories about teaching that would be more inspiring. I like the quotes--they were the best part. I specifically did not appreciate this au I am trying to think of who would be a good audience for this book, but the list is short. It is not for anyone already in the education profession.

It might be good for adults considering the education profession, but there are more exciting stories about teaching that would be more inspiring. I like the quotes--they were the best part. I specifically did not appreciate this author having a chapter on special ed when he had no experience in it. I was also shocked he claimed his school had a "well-developed, fine-tuned dress code." Then he went on to say that skirt length was finger tips. My local school had a minor revolt from female students over that description for length. Everyone's fingertips do not reach the same part of their thighs. It is way too vague for a dress code. Dress codes are often sexist and there has been news in recent years on this subject. The author does not go into that. It would have been much more interesting to discuss the sexist dress codes throughout the country than to hear about some of the uniform infractions this author had to deal with.
