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.

As Prof. In theology, I know what it means to transfer knowledge to students. You are either born for it or not. Teach with your heart or don't do the job. Often, others do not perceive us as important factors in the upbringing, education and formation of students. But we are the ones who are with them most of the time.
The book is dedicated to exactly that.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest feedback.
As a teacher I'm always interested in others experiences and thoughts. It's good for those new to our profession to see that no one is a perfect teacher right away. It takes times to find your stride and your style.
Thank you for sharing your experience.
