About the Author:

Dominic Belmonte taught at York Community High School in Elmhurst, Illinois, for twenty years as an English teacher and chairman of the English Department. He is now President and CEO of the Golden Apple Foundation for Excellence in Teaching. A member and past chairman of the Golden Apple Academy of Educators, in 1989 he co-created the Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois program, a pre-induction teacher preparation experience that is now the Golden Apple Foundation’s largest program, named by Harvard University as one of 15 programs out of 1,200 nationwide as a finalist for its Innovations in American Government award. In 1996 Belmonte also co-created the GATE (Golden Apple Teacher Education) program, an alternative pathway to teacher certification for mid-career adults wishing a career in teaching secondary math or science or teaching elementary school children.

Review:

"This book is unique. The author invites potential and experienced teachers to think more deeply about numerous facets of teaching we encounter but seldom consider. Teaching from the Deep End has story and heart. It also has a clear connection to the underbelly of the teaching and learning process; the author pushes those who teach to be more attuned to being consciously competent and not simply accidentally adequate. I learned a lot!"--Barrie Bennett, Professor of Education (03/03/2009)

"This book reframes the essence of what teaching is essentially about. The author provokes readers to think about their intentions and focuses on passion for teaching, the importance of knowing self, and the necessity of being cognizant of how bias and the use of language impact our work with students."--Sue Elliott, Teacher Counselor/Staff Developer (03/03/2009)

"This book is unique; the author invites potential and experienced teachers to think more deeply about numerous facets of teaching we encounter but seldom consider. I learned a lot!"--Barrie Bennett, Professor of Education (06/05/2009)

"Belmonte reminds us that teaching is not always about what you teach, but how and why you teach.He asks teachers to become reflective practitioners whowork with students, not for them, and that makes all the difference. Students turn into producers of knowledge, and teachers into artisans molding that beautiful vision with this philosophy of education."--Katherine Hogan, Founding Lead Teacher (12/15/2008)"
