Publisher's Summary

I went into teaching to change the world. Instead, my students changed me. These are some of my stories. I tell them at a time when education's gone from being a noble pursuit to the epicenter of a national storm. Good teachers are leaving the field at staggering rates. Politicians and pundits are out in full force. Everyone has something to say about education - everyone except the students and teachers in the classroom. Don't Sniff the Glue: A Teacher's Misadventures in Education Reform is the humorous and heartwarming story of one teacher working through idealism and red tape to teach the teens who will soon run the world.

Equal parts serious and humorous to education

What did you love best about Don't Sniff the Glue?

Don't Sniff the Glue goes well beyond a call for education reform or even insights into teaching. This book is for parents, teachers, mentors - anyone who has the opportunity to have a positive impact on our children.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Don't Sniff the Glue?

So many moments. Dawn uses her perspective from the front lines of teaching to not blast the system, but to shine a spotlight on how important teaching is to our kids and why people in the system need to be shaken into reality (and into this century) to make sure we're empowering our teachers to do all they can possibly do.

Just what I needed at this time year and at this time of change in education. Let us not forget why we teach. Thanks for the "read".
