Teaching Is...

Moments that inspire and motivate teacher to make a difference

Teaching Is: Moments that Inspire and Motivate Teachers to Make a Difference
I think most teachers are such big hearts walking around. Think about it. I have one or two children and they drive me nuts most of the time, but a teacher has 22 or more children MOST OF THE DAY and they somehow survive and manage to impart knowledge and learning techniques in our children. Just imagine it for a minute and you'll see the hugeness of it all.

This book is a quick read and it will touch your heart and sometimes draw you to tears because you can't not remember when you were a student...or if now you are a teacher or parent who volunteers and interact with teachers.

Very good little book. Easy read for the busy mind.
Teaching is made up of a series of moments. Moments that are memorable disappear lal too quickly, almost unnoticed. Other moment linger, but are soon forgotten. 
Memorable moments are the fuel for a teacher's passion to teach, and to continue to teach when the challenges are almost overwhelming and seemingly insurmountable. 
This book is a series of moment that inspire and motivate teachers to make a difference in spite of insurmountable challenges.

The book is a five year labor of love for Glavac. He captures and offers up the indelible magic moments that teachers experience day in and day out. It seeks to break through the walls of mis-understanding, misguided criticisms, concerns of high pay, teacher performance, accountability, and untold working hours.

Teaching Is... is filled with short parables from his own experience. With words and pictures the book highlights the power of teacher to inispire, motivate and make a difference:
Teaching Is...
After telling the class that you grew up wihtout a microwave, a student asks "How did you reheat your food?" (You're tempted to say, "Over the fire!")
There is  special reassurance that come sform experiencing the personal wisdom of an experiened educator who has walked the path.
Teaching is...
Being remembered and thanked at the end of the year...with a handwritten note on a scrap piece of wrinkled paper. 
He shows that what teachers give goes beyond the curriculum. He shares and celebrates waht true education is all about.
Teaching Is...
Telling an elementary student that one day she will become an Olympic athlete...and she does as a member of 2 Olympic teams.
You cannot help but feel refreshed and invigorated by the unbounded optimism and truthful insight.
Teaching Is...
Seeing students leaning forward in their seats, listening to your every word, following your each and every instruction, staring at yuo intently, mouths and eyes wide open...the AHA moment...something every teacher strives for.
Here is a very special, singularly unique, and beautiful way to learn, appreciate and understand the dedication of teachers and why they devote their lives to making a difference to the lives of the children they touch.
