This book is about teaching and the life, energy, substance, hope, and determination that excellent teachers bring to the rhythm of classrooms every day, year in and year out. Ultimately, schooling, despite its external pressures and cynics, comes down to students, to what happens in the classroom, and to the person who orchestrates it—the teacher. The book packages experiences and lessons from classroom life through the voice of teachers, both mine and others. Likewise, the book offers a diorama of encounters with teachers, sprinkled here and there, to illustrate classroom life through the voice of students. Knitting teacher and student perspectives together, the book intends to inspire teachers and those who are learning to teach with universal insights drawn from elementary school, middle school, high school, and college.
