This is entirely a book of the author's responses to real questions asked by student teachers, as well as first and second year teachers. The author's ideas and opinions are based on seven years on the "front lines" of teaching and three years as an educational consultant. For new teachers, the book is a practical "been there, done that" approach to overcoming the most common problems that teachers have.
