Teacher Writes Book to Help Teachers Stay in Education

December 18, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Education News
Dallas TX, - Seeking to change the number of teachers leaving the professions, Lisa Chappell has written a book to help teachers get step-by-step instructions on how to handle a variety of teaching situations.

Every year over 200,000 teaching positions have to be filled, because teachers are leaving the classroom at an alarming rate.

“The first few years are a learning experience, but it doesn't have to be a bad learning experience,” said Chappell. “This book helps answer a lot of questions that teachers have on a daily basis.”

Many teachers find themselves doing what they believe to be right, but somehow they find themselves in the principal’s office, surprised and confused. It doesn’t take much to be placed on a probation list or fired.

This book is the ultimate guide for good teachers who want to be successful, effective and protected.

Chappell will be traveling around the country speaking at several universities helping education students, who are graduating, and current teachers learn how to protect themselves at work.
