Elementary, middle, and high school teachers—both new and experienced—can find beneficial information on every page. Not only are there tips on how to manage the ‘science’ of education—seating charts, lesson plans, daily routines—but also on how to master the ‘art’ of this profession with sections devoted to classroom management, motivation, professional expertise, and learning how to be part of a team of professionals. Beginning teachers need this valuable resource. Certainly, in my early years of teaching, I could have benefited immensely from having this book on my desk.”—Pam Leigh, English teacher, Spotswood High School, VA
