About the Author
Dan Henderson was recruited in his late twenties to serve as an elementary school teacher in an inner city school in the United States. Day two of teaching involved being spit on, cussed out, hit, and generally abused by the students he was trying to help. Dan's collection of stories span three different inner city schools. He recalls how things went awry and provides tools anyone can use.
Layered in all the ridiculous stories are real experiences you might encounter, which I pair with practical, functional tips. These tales are the product of inner city pressures and many social dilemmas. We can't solve all of the world's problems. We can help a child in our community. We can laugh at their silly mistakes, and we can learn through our failures. Just as we teach our students to learn though their failures, new teachers can feel overwhelmed and need to know many teachers have had similar experiences. Few people told me I would cry myself to sleep or admit that I failed. Yes, I failed and learned more through the challenges. Challenges are good; they help you grow. My hope is you can take a lesson from this book to improve your teaching or parenting.
