"This is the first book to make me feel seen - floating, hopeful mess and all. It is real. It’s not one of those overly positive keynote speeches where you roll your eyes at your teacher friend. It’s instead one of those professional developments where the speaker comes in, takes their shoes off, speaks to you like a human, and gives you something you can use that day. This book gives us what we actually need to heal our souls and keep us going in the classroom (or whatever the education world looks like for you)."
