“This book of rules would make Dr. Phil smile. The precise, practical and child centered volume is perfect for the new teacher. By incorporating research, common sense and big doses of humor, this quick and dirty read should be on every new teachers’ (and veteran teachers’ as well) professional library shelf.” Dr. Michael O’Laughlin, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services, Union School District, San Jose, CA
“Susan Guerrero’s ’42 Rules of Elementary School Teachers’ honors the reasons why young people go into teaching and affirms the best instincts of those who have been in the trenches for decades. She reminds us of the power of a teacher’s perception and model to support the courage and joy of learning. Two examples are Rule 29: ‘Every Student is Gifted’ and Talented and Rule 33: ‘Laugh Every Day.’ The small, poignant stories that Guerrero tells of her students and colleagues roots her rules in reality, heart and hope.” Laurie Marshall, Teacher, Novato Charter School, Novato, CA.
