About the Author:

Bob Kitchen has been involved in education for more than 20 years. Currently, he teaches high school in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Review:

Chock full of practical information and advice that all veteran teachers wish someone had told them when they were rookies...excellent tips for classroom preparation, parent communication, and discipline that teachers should know from the date they are hired...will ease many of the jitters associated with launching a teaching career. (NSTA Recommends)

A common-sense approach to the profession, salted by the voice of experience. (The Cincinnati Post)

I feel like I have found the Holy Grail. Finally a book that is the practical, bare bones sort of thing I have been looking for. (Katie Donohoue, student, Miami University)

After reading Bob Kitchen's book I actually feel...more prepared when going out and beginning my first teaching job. ...he gives critical advice for beginning teachers. (Rachel Begley, student, Miami University)

This book offers the more practical advice that is much needed but often omitted from college curriculum. (Diane Kuhn, student teacher)

Aimed at new teachers and education students, but useful to others, this guidebook offers such practical advice as: how to find a job, how to prepare for a job, what to do and say on your first day in the classroom, and how to handle various discipline situations. (Education Week)

Bob Kitchen's book is a rare first-hand account from a teacher who has absorbed numerous lessons from the front of the classoom...and are all enlightening to those who have stood in his shoes as a teacher. ...his thoughts and insights on discipline and classroom management certainly provide a valuable resource for teachers of any subject. (Jon Unger, math teacher, 8 years)
