So You Want To Be a Principal relates many of the experiences Mr. Bowen encountered while working in public and international schools. It suggests that many of the circumstances are difficult and unusual, necessitating the development of a skill set that is not available prior to ones appointment as an administrator and which must therefore be learned. Death, crime, alcohol and drug abuse, parental confrontation, cultural differences, terrorism, and school board politics are some of the areas which he describes in vivid detail.

So You Want to Be a Teacher is a bit of light reading in a troubled world today. I left names by the wayside and emphasized actions, especially innovative behavior. The students I enjoyed were full of mischief, but for the most part, it was simply that mischief. Very few of the students I taught in my forty years were bad they just needed a bit of love and understanding. Who cares what Socrates said when you are a student who had no supper the night before? I try to be a stepping-stone, not a stumbling block.

So, You Want To Be a Teacher By Charles J.Mertz: In a time when educating America’s children seems more important than ever, more demanding of teachers and staff, and increasingly criticized, Mertz offers some practical, useful ways to improve the art and practice of teaching. From discussing the necessity of having one’s own, personal philosophy of teaching to suggestions on dealing with students, fellow teacher, and administrative staff, Mertz stresses personal interaction, attention paid to the individual, and above all, the ability to turn every question and classroom occurrence into a teaching opportunity. This is a “must read” for anyone contemplating entering the teaching profession . . . and an entertaining read for anyone who has ever taught.
