The ABC's Of Teaching

Ever wonder what magic formula makes a successful teacher. Guess what? There is no magic formula or magic pill. But, I hope this book will help you become a successful teacher. This book, organized in ABC form, concentrates on characteristics I have observed over my career as a teacher.  Each topic is divided alphabetically. An appendix is added at the end of the book for topic organization. Teacher traits follow a specific guideline. Each attribute is explained, first by an opinion based on personal experience along with a teacher story where applicable, and then by a visual. I love teaching and want to see more people choosing teaching as a career. It is with that positive spirit that I hope you enjoy and find information you can use from this ABC book for teachers.

The Countdown Deer-Count Harper

Countdown with your child to all of life's treasured events.  The tradition of counting down with “sleeps” started when my children were very young. A special toy, a teddy bear for my daughter and an “Ernie” for my son, would remind them of how long it was until the event happened. We tweaked this tradition as they grew adding on countdowns for plays, sporting events, and projects due. It taught them the necessity of being prepared and time management. This book tells the story of a magical deer, Count Harper, who has crowns instead of antlers, and will remind your child of special events. The story can also be read to any toy the child chooses to pass the magic of Count Harper onto that toy. I hope you enjoy counting down to those special times as much as my family.
