Essay Published

on July 28, 2009

My essay, “Teaching Josh”, is published in a new book by Adams Media entitled, My First Year in the Classroom: 50 Stories that Celebrate the Good, The Bad, and the Most Unforgettable Moments.

“Teaching Josh” is a personal essay about working with a seventh grade student, my first year of teaching, who had ADD. His mother did not want him medicated, and the essay is about what he taught me. I often feel that this student was the beginnings of my path in working with and writing about at-risk youth.

The book has many inspiring essays and is perfect for a first year teacher or someone going back to school!
