You are invited to take a thirty-six-story journey into the classroom of award winning teacher and speaker, Chris Bowen. Teach like a mentor. Teach as your better self. Teaching is all about building relationships, and consider this book to be relationship advice worth taking. As Mr. Bowen states in his book, "Anybody can be tough with a nine year old. But it takes the strength of patience, empathy, and honesty to build the more effective, lasting relationship."

They peddled work with little purpose and great distractions to fill what they called the emptiness inside.
