Other Praise for this book
--Vicky Colbert, Founder and Director of Fundacion Escuela Nueva and Yidan Prize Laureate for Educational Development (2017)
"Doucet is a history teacher and he brings himself and his students to the whole wide world. In Teaching Life he shows how teaching can be a ticket to boundless imagination, and an energizing but focussed romp into learning about oneself and the world. Doucet has written a stimulating and compelling book to act and learn in concert."
--Michael Fullan, O.C., Professor Emeritus, OISE/University of Toronto
"Teaching Life is a passionate and engaging story of teaching. It is another must-read for anyone interested in championing classroom-focused change. It is a book that raises important questions about education as a new vision about more than simply preparing students for a technologically - advanced world, but also about how education can prepare them to embrace values such as equity, justice, peace and human rights."
--Irina Bokova, Director General UNESCO (2009-2017)
"An award-winning teacher, Doucet draws upon his own decades of work as a coach, teacher, leader, and his visits to classes across the globe to argue that education is the single most important social program for the long-term future success of any society. This timely and teacher-centered piece reminds us that a country that cannot think, is just as dangerous as a country that cannot defend itself."
--Maggie MacDonnell, Global Teacher Prize Winner (2017)
