About this title

Synopsis:

Think Twice....About Teaching is a narrative tale written as a memoir that covers a lot of ground concerning the field of education. It begins as an autobiography then delves into a retrospective view of the classroom environment beginning with the 1970's and traces the changes up to the present. After detailing changes in teaching world over the past thirty years,the next phase of the book describes the gut-wrenching destruction of a highly-disciplined career teacher with a traditional approach to problem-solving in his classroom. A conspiracy is hatched by a cabal of small-minded bureaucrats and politicians against this man resulting in a protracted administrative termination hearing and a subsequent process of appeal. This book could be read as either a textbook on teacher education or as a victim's story.Through either prism you will not come away disappointed and you might look at the teaching profession in an entirely new light.
