Why are so many teachers leaving the profession? They're burned out; they feel disrespected, and unsupported. After teaching remotely during a pandemic, they're returning to classrooms with under-socialized and sometimes out-of-control kids. What to do?    Teaching with Heart chronicles the journey of a journalist-turned-teacher determined to make teaching work--despite its difficulties. Peek into Madame Nelson's classroom to see her trying to reach teens who dance, cry, and hit each other in French class; administrators who laud the latest pedagogical trends and testing regime; and parents who sometimes support--and sometimes interfere with--their children's education. Meet colleagues who save her from quitting, and her children who provide advice. Along the journey, she evolves from an aloof elitist into an empathetic listener to all sorts of teens.  Isn't it time we create schools in which teachers want to stay and new ones enter? Without committed teachers, how can we prepare students to run our world? Teaching with Heart illuminates why it's so hard to hold on to classroom teachers these days--and what can be done to better the situation.… (mais)

Teaching With Heart is a true story about Jennifer Nelson pursuing a journalist career who decided that the lifestyle was ruining her family time, and therefore pursued a teaching career. I wish I could have been there at the beginning of her change, as I would have told her that teaching (at least in most public school settings) is even more draining. As a retired teacher with 15 years experience over 30 years (I decided that taking time off for 7 years or so each time to raise my two children was mandatory,) I have seen the gamut of situations, schools, and settings. I have taught anywhere from kindergarten to 9th grade. I have taught in elementary and middle school. I have taught full-time, and I have taught part-time. The only situation I did not have, and wish that I could have told Jennifer personally was a highly desired one, is private school. Private school is totally different, much less stressful, but you have to be "elite" enough or know someone to get in. That is such a shame, because I would have been a brilliant private school teacher. Without giving any spoilers, Jennifer tries several different situations, and finds her happiness, but the best part of the book which is going to reveal the true scenario of public school teaching today are the STATISTICS after 2000. My teaching career started in 1990. I officially ended it in 2017, and saw the huge tumble from 2009 until I finally threw in the towel in 2017. I taught in SC, and from what I read, I don't think the teachers in her state feel the pains as highly as we do. That being said, the only other issue that bothered me was an apparent lack of self-esteem of the author in the beginning of her career, which obviously her students grasped. The self-blame of not liking her students enough had nothing to do with the situation that she felt like was a failure. I, too, was more academic-oriented in the beginning, but I had HIGH success in the early years when I truly didn't know what I was doing. That is another issue that teachers who take the traditional route know: college does ZERO to prepare you. All the cute lessons and procedures have nothing to do with what is challenging and nearly impossible to do. And honestly, colleges don't want teachers to know, as they would not even major in Education. To be told you are underpaid, worked beyond your hours, and will never be valued by others, often even your own administration, is a job worse than being a poor clergyman. And that is the book I had hoped this would be. That being said, it is great to hear thoughts from others who are non-traditional teachers. I don't want to give spoiler alerts, but I honestly thought the ending would be very different. I admire those who stay in the profession, but quite frankly, the teachers are being abused to the point where they can't make it anywhere close to retirement. It is NOT a good stepping stone to other careers, unless you are interested in running your own business. Even if you find a great second career, you are basically starting over. I know this from experience. You lose so much when you have to resign, and then use your retirement early to live while you seek other employment. However, I am very pleased with any educator who brings to light vital statistics that support that Education needs a huge overhaul. It really does. ( )

Even though I'm not a teacher, I enjoy a good teaching memoir, and this one was a pleasant read. I'm not sure I would have appreciated it as much had I actually been a teacher, because the author's travails were harrowing and it wasn't clear that she would succeed in the field for a very long time. I wished for greater depth in her conveying of her own story, and I wasn't sure that the many teaching-related tips and factoids added to the book, as it wasn't really a teaching instruction manual as much as it was a memoir. Still, overall I was glad to have read this. ( )
