Over the course of a teaching career, a teacher encounters students who need to be nurtured, children who show their love, class clowns, inspiring colleagues, and a few parents who help make the job worthwhile. Now teachers can record their special memories for posterity in A Teachers Journal: Memories of the Classroom.Divided into ten chapters that encompass the full depth and breadth of a teaching career, A Teachers Journal is a powerful tool for self-discovery. Writing prompts on each page help teachers reach back into their memories for the stories, people, and experiences that have meant the most to them. In the first chapter, So You Want to Teach, teachers explore their reasons for becoming a teacher. Who inspired you? What did you teach as a student teacher, and what were your students like? Other chapters cover memories of students, classroom routines, school administration, students parents, extracurricular involvement, and, finally, how a teacher would like to be remembered. Several blank pages at the back allow teachers to record even more memorable moments.All teachers-men and women, elementary, middle school, and secondary school teachers, new teachers and veterans-will relish this opportunity to reflect on their careers and share their stories in a book that will be a beautiful keepsake for themselves and for family members. It is the perfect gift for any teacher on any occasion. More than anything else, A Teachers Journal is the gift that says, You are part of a noble profession, and your stories are a valuable legacy.
