“As a longtime administrator in both the public schools and higher education, I have often seen teacher candidates and new teachers struggle because of a lack of guidance… the authors have masterfully provided assistance to these individuals. The book is very straightforward, but quite comprehensive. I would strongly recommend this publication for those contemplating a career in education.”
