A Celebration of the Power of Teaching There is a moment for most teachers when the lure of working with kids surpasses all logic: You know, you just know, that you are meant to teach. But in the day-to-day crush of details and bus duty, politics and paperwork, or kids without their homework for the eighth day in a row, life can erode passion and distract you from your sense of purpose. This collection of stories from teachers everywhere will remind you of those magic moments when a light goes on in the eyes of a child, when resistance breaks, when hearts connect—moments that make the challenges of teaching worth every second and remind you of why you are here in the first place.
