WEIGHTY WORDS, CRAZY WISDOM, THE ROAD TO DETENTION, AND ADVICE WE COULD NEVER FORGET, EVEN IF WE TRIED
Our teachers are the men and women who stand at the front of the classroom during our formative years, the folks who keep us in line, somehow teach us fractions, often instill good manners and lifelong values, and scrape the spitballs off the walls at the end of very long days. Along with our parents, they are probably the most important influences leading us down the path––sometimes smooth, often rocky––to our adult selves.
Like My Teacher Always Said... pulls together a rainbow of the savvy, helpful, humorous, and questionable real-life wisdom from these significant figures and encompasses quotes from––as well as stories about––teachers, coaches, counselors, and even a few good old-fashioned Catholic school nuns. Gathered in chapters such as "Scare Tactics," "Advice That Stuck," and "Crazy Town," it's a perfect volume to inspire memories of student days, and an ideal gift to give to teachers to show your appreciation for the impact they've had on your life.
