WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK ...

"I care deeply about my chosen profession, so I felt compelled to provide a reminder that public education has been the cornerstone of the greatness of America. Teaching and leading schools used to be enjoyable and meaningful. America did not become great without excellent teachers who developed human beings who became surgeons, scientists, engineers, doctors, astronauts, professors and on and on."
