I have a question for all the H.S. English teachers out there. When I first went to school over 20 years ago, I was going to be a H.S. English teacher, my major was English/Humanities. Fast forward 20 years, and I'm back in school but this time for my multiple subject credential. I'm almost done, and now wondering if I first shouldn't explore the H.S. English thing again. Before returning back to school, I read several books to give me a "feel" for being a teacher and to see if I thought it sounded like how I would want to spend my day. "First Days" by Wong and "Love and Logic" by Fay were my first 2. Yep! I wanted to return to teach! Is there a book that you feel gives a good indication of day-to-day life of H.S. English teacher? I'm looking at "English Teacher's Survival Guide" by Brandvik and wondering if I shouldn't read through that. What do you think?
