It does not matter if you’re not a teacher, because there must be a time in your life that you have been a student or former student somehow. Thus, I am sure many of you will appreciate Chicken Soup For The Soul: Teacher Tales because this title will bring back a lot of memories of that person who held a special place in your heart during those school days.
Written by a majority of teachers (all of the 2009 State Teachers of the Year and the 2009 National Teacher of the Year), Chicken Soup For The Soul : Teacher Tales pays tribute to the noble profession – TEACHING. It is both deeply touching and heart warming to read about how each of these teachers make that extra effort to influence, encourage and inspire their students, despite the trials and tribulations of working with children of all ages, some of which may even be academically handicapped.
My favourite include the story about how a teacher thought she was going to receive a complain from a student’s parent but instead she received a visit from a very grateful Mr.Wagner who thanked her for changing his son’s perception towards school. In the parent’s own words “Our boy is a happy boy again”.
“Secrets Students Keep” is one of the more touching story from the book. The teacher’s sensitivity and ability to emphatize with her student Sam was probably one of the best thing she could do for him during that day of tragedy. And if you’re just wondering, yes, I made good use of my Kleenex 😉
Teachers who are feeling the pressure of the job should pick up a copy of this book as it will definitely give you a sense of renewed passion and fresh vision for changing your students’ lives. This book is also a great way to say thank you to those special teachers in your lives.
