Chicken Soup for the Soul: Teacher Tales (Review and 2 Giveaways)

It is nearing the end of the school year for my son, and many other students are already out for summer break. I think that teachers sure have a big job with being a huge source to educate our children.
Chicken Soup has a book in honor of teachers: Chicken Soup for the Soul Teacher Tales.
"Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around." ~Leo Buscaglia
This is such a powerful and true statement (I think). Teachers have such influence and impact on their students. The stories in the Teacher Tales is overflowing with stories from students whose lives have been greatly touched by their teachers. This book shares stories from when teachers first start out, their first years, all the way to retirement. Story after story Teacher Tales reveals the reasons people choose to teach, what teachers learn from their students, and embarrasing stories. It is a great book to laugh and cry with, and one that may bring you back to your schooling years.
Teacher Tales, from Chicken Soup for the Soul, makes a great gift for a Teacher who has touched your life~ or your child's life.

I had a really great teacher -- she taught me French 3 & 4 in high school, and we reconnected in the past year on Facebook :) She was my favorite because she was also a friend, and we could talk about things besides school. *Thanks* for the giveaway!

My teachers sparked something in me that has lead me to teach myself. I love being able to help kids learn and discover hidden abilities. Teaching is and always has been a deep passion in my life.

When I was in second grade in 1957 I had what was then the typical teacher..very grandmotherly and loving. She was so calm and patient with all of us kids. She taught me to read and write.
