Being Schooled : What This Teacher Learned in the American School System
Being Schooled evolved from a letter Rhonda Leet wrote to the school board in regard to growing concern about her school's climate. Her twelve years of teaching journals will give you a real honest glimpse into the daily challenges that take away the joy of teaching. She had valid concerns including teachers leaving in droves and escalating behavior problems. Upon leaving her school, Leet's passion for educational reform has not waned since removing her nameplate from the classroom door. Educating students went beyond the brick and mortar of school as she welcomed student families to visit her home, gardens and barnyard animals well after the school bell had rung where more lessons could be gathered. This book may have readers looking in the mirror saying to themselves; how do I value a teacher, children, parenting, and marriage? Get ready for a wave of emotions when you read about her teaching experience! Parents write... "Your students are a part of your family" "Mrs. Leet you are a rare jewel in education today"
