Review:

"The text focuses on motivation for teaching and what the teaching life will entail--students, curriculum, financing, ethics, governance, etc. . . . It is very readable and focuses on the current state of education today. It also has a central theme of why students might be choosing to teach which is very appropriate for our first year students."Melanie Felton, College of Saint Mary

"I taught the course for the first time this year and found the textbook invaluable! It is very appropriate for the level of students in my course. "Patricia Blaine, Western Kentucky Community and Technical College
