Hi Ashley, My name is Leon Avrech in San Jose (small world). I am a retired 8th grade U.S. History teacher. I retired after 37yrs. in middle school as teacher, dept. chair, vice principal and principal. After 10 yrs as principal I went back to teaching 8th grade history. I miss it unlike alot of teachers who are happy to get out. You know some of them I'm sure. I wrote a book to help new teachers. "Think You Can Teach? A Survival Guide For New Middle School Teachers". I wrote the book with a passion to help teachers be successful. I hope that you will tell your colleagues about the book. 37 yrs experience for $10 available at amazon, barnesandnoble.com xlibris.com Two book stores in downtown Santa Cruz carried my book for awhile. Capitola Books & Cafe too. Any bookstore can look up my book and order it for their store. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if anyone has questions. Thank you. Leon Avrech book is applicable to all grade levels. I would love to hear from you about your class. I am married two daughters five grandchildren. Still miss teaching.
