MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book has a very good handle on the specifics of what an inexperienced teacher might encounter. It is clearly written and easy to understand."

-- Ken Klopack, Art Educator

"Finally, a book about teaching that lives up to its name: it's practical; it does guide; and it is totally appropriate for the beginning teacher. Wilke uses her twenty years of teaching pupils and supervising novice teachers to design a road map to success for teachers embarking on their journeys from the job hunt to the summer vacation following their first year of teaching. If new teachers followed this map, they would certainly succeed in navigating the twists and turns of that most difficult year on the job."

-- Robert Infantino, Professor of Education

"A comprehensive and thoughtful review of important issues and things to consider for all beginning teachers. This little book could well serve as a mentor for those new to the teaching profession."

-- Stuart E. Gothold, Clinical Professor

"This book is a valuable resource to teachers because it is very 'hands on,' filled with practical information and suggestions about how to handle the everyday problems and issues that teachers will confront. It has a good theoretical foundation, but is simple, straightforward, highly accessible, and free of confusing jargon. The focus on diversity is an especially key feature. It should be a valuable resource to any beginning teacher."

-- Robert Rueda, Professor

"[It] is a "reader friendly" guide written especially for those new to the chaotic yet rewarding art of educating young people, whether in a public or private school environment."

-- Reviewer's Bookwatch, April 2003
