Mansfield, Texas (PressExposure) December 03, 2006 -- What happens when a new teacher is accused of being out of the classroom too much, how should male teachers protect themselves, or why are so many teachers being fired?
Award-winning journalist and beloved educator answers these questions and more in the Teacherâs Survival Guideâ¦Learn the ABCâs of Protecting Yourself Before You Are in a Hostile Environment.
Dallas TX, (December 03, 2006) - Seeking to change the number of teachers leaving the professions, Lisa Chappell has written a book to help prospective teachers get step-by-step instructions on how to handle their first years of teaching.
Every year over 200,000 teaching positions have to be filled, because teachers are leaving the classroom at an alarming rate.
âThe first few years are a learning experience, but it doesn't have to be a bad learning experience,â said Chappell. âThis book helps answer a lot of questions that teachers have on a daily basis.â
Many teachers find themselves doing what they believe to be right, but somehow they find themselves in the principalâs office, surprised and confused. It doesnât take much to be placed on a probation list.
This book is the ultimate guide for good teachers who want to be successful, effective and protected.
Chappell will be traveling around the country speaking at several universities helping education students, who are graduating, prepare to enter the teaching arena.
