Not your typical how-to manual for new teachers, this book is a no-nonsense, jargon-free guide to mastering the ins and outs of day-to-day classroom life. Drawing on his own experiences and those of his colleagues, Kriegel offers a wide variety of tools and tactics for getting through every school day with grace - and sanity. Covered in glue, glitter orange juice - or worse? Make a quick change into the spare set of clothes you keep on hand for just this purpose. Butterflies in your stomach before your first-ever Meet the Teacher Night? Keep your cool by writing the evening's agenda on your board - It will double as a crib sheet for you.
