    I had the privilege of hearing Karen speak recently and I have to say the she is the kindest, most practical teacher of pedagogy that I have ever come across This book is a great resource that is both practical and inspirational Karen doesn t just paint an unrealistic pie in the sky picture, but also gives realistic advice which I find very helpful as a new teacher.
