Teaching is a lot like childbirth - it's messy and beautiful all at the same time. There's tears of joy and pain. The weak may faint. There's screaming. But in the end, it's the best way we know of being fruitful.

TEACHING POETRY celebrates the beauty and acknowledges the pain of teaching. From having a special education student make a breakthrough to catching a theatre student making out in the bathroom, these poems describe some teacher's everyday.

If you are a teacher, this book is a great encouraging read. If you aren't a teacher, you should buy this book for a teacher and tell them thank you. The poems here will have you laughing and crying, depending on the page.

Author's Note

There's no many better ways to express truth than poetry, and there's no better way to communicate truth than teaching. TEACHING POETRY started as a journal to keep me sane as I experienced the great spectrum of anger, heartbreak, joy, and pride almost every single day. Later, I realized that this book could be used to keep other teachers sane too!

So whether your a teacher who needs a pat on the back from someone who knows just how great you are, or your someone who wants to see public education through the eyes of today's modern warriors, enjoy.
