What is the best strategy for beginning a discussion with an irate parent? How can a teacher enforce anti-tardy rules when the school offers little or no support? Why is cursive handwriting useful in today's computerized world? How should teachers notify parents of suspected drug use? These modern public school problems, among many others, are discussed at length in this book.

Geneva Fulgham urges teachers to remember that personal moral standards have to be developed and reinforced on a regular basis. She guides and encourages teachers to balance between low pay, unwanted interruptions, and frequent lack of administrative support with the vast reward of doing well in the most important occupation-teaching. Written by a teacher with three decades of experience, this work is an inspiring guide for new teachers, and experienced teachers will find validation of their own thoughts and feelings about teaching.

About the Author:

Geneva Fulgham taught English and journalism in Houston public schools for 29 years before retiring to write prose and poetry.

Review:

Fulgham addresses issues not often covered in education classes―from uncooperative principals to how to behave in the teachers' lounge. (Bellaire Examiner)

Here, in a sensible, practical, easy-to-read style, [Geneva Fulgham] shares the knowledge gleaned from three decades. This information should be helpful for beginning and experienced teachers, as well as parents and those in non-teaching positions within the public education system. (Midwest Book Review)

An easy, often fun, read. (Teachers College Record)

This guide for teachers wanting to be more successful in the classroom begins with tips for planning lessons and asking other teachers for advice and then discusses issues connected with coming up with a teaching philosophy, discipline, grading, attendance, testing, homework, and dealing with problems. (Reference and Research Book News)
