This book was written, as if written by a man who got overly acknowledged for something he should have been trying to do as a teacher anyways!!!!

As a teacher myself, I can, and have, taken a class of highest poverty and trauma, low achieving, below grade level students and turn them into a class where every child in my and only my class alone in my school learned to read at or far above grade level on their end of year state tests, too. I did it this year.

I was looking for a book to motivate me, and push this to this level or a next level. I was not interested in hearing over and over and over again about those who do not do well and just skim by, and about how Ron Clark ignores the teachers he calls riders, walkers, etc., in his school, and how awesome he finds the highest achieving ones. I’m not sure whether he realizes this book is more of just a way to talk about himself and what he does, or not.

I was looking for a book for teachers who successfully do have and continue to push above and beyond. Not to hear about the teachers who do not. That was mostly what this book was like. It was depressing!

I’m off to read, Teach Like a Pirate, now! That books is motivational and fun for those who are more ambitious and fun! Oh, and high achieving.
