I went into teaching to change the world. Instead, my students changed me. These are some of my stories. I tell them at a time when education’s gone from being “a noble pursuit” to the epicenter of a national storm. Good teachers are leaving the field at staggering rates. Politicians and pundits are out in full force. Everyone has something to say about education–everyone except the students and teachers in the classroom. Don’t Sniff the Glue: A Teacher’s Misadventures in Education Reform is the humorous and heartwarming story of one teacher working through idealism and red tape to teach the teens who will soon run the world.
Tiny T-Rex wakes up cranky and spends the entire day trying to annoy Mom. But he can’t, because she is unannoyable. Who will win this battle of wills? This is the 99% true story of Dawn’s son Declan. It’s only 99% true, because illustrator Sarah Steenland turned him into a dinosaur, which he is not. The rest is true. Mostly.
Dawn and Sarah strike again with a poem and coloring book about the scenic Australian Paronella Park.
