I really wanted to love this book. I spend Thanksgiving vacation writing report cards, Christmas vacation cleaning my classroom, and summer vacation taking classes on how to relax. You haven't always known how to write. We take all these things for granted. Anyway, it is a fun read. It made me smile so many times and made me so excited to have my own classrooom and hilarious stories to tell.

He reminds us of the delight of learning something for the first time and of the value of making a difference. I correct pencil grips and spelling mistakes and bad manners. Maybe I took it too personally, but it's one of those things that makes me cringe when I hear teachers disregarding the importance of student ownership and voice. Philip Done is such an incredible teacher and I hope I can inspire my future students as much as he does. Through his cleaver organizational component you get the opportunity of spending a year with Done, Ronny, Amanda and the rest of the class.

Kids need at least one teacher in their lives that doe This man's fondness for his students shines in every word he writes. He reminds us of the delight of learning something for the first time and of the value of making a difference. I am forever amazed what teachers gather up for their classrooms. I always begin a sentence with a capital and end it with a period. Come back on Sunday to see my review of a mermaid fairy tale novella! You haven't always known how to write. I push in chairs all the way, push swings higher, and push sleeves up while children are painting. He certainly has the required sense of humor.
