Do you need inspiration and reaffirmation with regards to your work? Teachers and educators at all levels and from every discipline, along with everyone else who cares about teaching and learning, will be moved by the impassioned words and images expressed by teachers in these pages.

In a poem about the first day of school, a 21-year veteran teacher of 3rd and 4th graders says he is still "so in awe of this moment / and these children."

In an essay about teaching students with special needs, an experienced 8th grade teacher calls her students her "guardian angels."

A secondary school music director calls music education a "lifetime sport," and explains her philosophy: "What could be better than giving a 6th grader something to be...proud of?"

A veteran arts educator created a brochure, illustrated by her primary students, to persuade their state governor to reinstate arts education funding. It worked.
This book celebrates teachers and teaching. Through their stories, poems, plays, and artwork, 42 experienced teachers describe the deep connections they have forged with students and with the profession. After many years in the classroom, these teachers are still excited, intrigued, and–-yes-–in love with teaching. Their passion for teaching serves as an inspiration for all educators and as an impetus for others to consider teaching as a profession.
