View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Written by three practicing teachers sharing their (combined) 50 years of schoolhouse savvy, this book portrays the joys, sorrows, stresses and potential pitfalls of teaching in today's classrooms. It includes strategies for dealing with other teachers, school administrators and specialists, aides, substitutes, parents, intruders, and-above all-students. Aptly titled, and with an honest, encouraging voice that reflects diverse viewpoints, this book offers sound, easy-to-follow advice on managing time, avoiding or coping with stress, and handling the wide range of duties, responsibilities, and concerns every K-12 teacher faces. The book is jam-packed with helpful hints on subjects ranging from wardrobe choice and record-keeping to where to safely store everyone's "stuff." The text is anecdotal, rather than theoretical, and addresses a myriadof on-the-job topics not usually covered in education classes. Such asliability and safety issues, technology integration, professionalism, parent communications, group behavior management-even how to write tests to foil guessers, how to answer students' questions that are too personal, and how to avoid being overwhelmed by it all. For pre-service or in-service teachers.
