A Teacher Like You



I received this precious book, A Teacher Like You, as a gift from one of my students.  Reading it brought tears to my eyes as I close out 48 years of teaching.  

Second grade teachers, Frank Murphy and Barbara Dan, have taught together at Holland Elementary in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, for years.  Both teachers champion social/emotional learning and leadership development.  Their collaboration on this book was sparked by those interests.  In their story they mention the many, many ways teachers meaningfully and positively touch the lives of their students.  

The illustrator, Kayla Harren, is very good at drawing people.  I love how inclusive she was with all the races and cultures represented in her lovely artwork.  

This lovely tribute makes a wonderful gift for your child's favorite teacher.
