By Todd Whitaker

It’s Teacher Appreciation week and not too late to honor yours or your kids’ teachers with a sweet book, The Ultimate Teacher.

The hope of inspiring another generation, the need to give something back, the desire to share one’s passion—these are some of the reasons people become teachers. They influence us in obvious ways—the kind grade-school teacher who helped you memorize your times tables or the demanding coach who pushed you to be the best you could be. They influence our lives in subtle ways, too—challenging us to discover hidden talents, helping to mold us into productive members of society, and motivating us to view the world through different lenses.

You’ll get a glimpse into the lives of dedicated teachers and share their struggles, triumphs, and passion for teaching. You’ll delight in the recollections of students who celebrate and commemorate educators who not only inspired them, but ultimately changed their lives. And you’re sure to pick up a new idea from the experts who share their proven techniques for conducting successful parent-teacher conferences, making a substitute teacher an invaluable member of your team, helping a struggling reader, and many other subjects that affect teachers in the trenches.

Celebrate the difference a teacher can make—celebrate The Ultimate Teacher.
