Title: Unacceptable Expectations: A Young Teachers Struggle with Conformity

Author: James A. Gauthier J.D. 

Release Date: 29 January 2015

Goodreads | Amazon

Summary: 

Exceptional students become exceptional teachers. Rachel achieved her master’s degree in education and became a certified teacher at age 17. Rachel’s first interview with the teacher’s union placed her on notice that she was a link in a curriculum driven education program. She was to teach her grade level curriculum only and never bring attention upon herself or her peers. Conformity was the rule and mediocrity was the goal.
Rachel refused the union’s demand to conform and motivates her students to become exceptional and exceed grade level expectations. The more successful Rachel is in her classroom, the more the push back by the teacher’s union to return her to mediocrity. Conflict between Rachel and the union results in the union poisoning Rachel, falsely accusing her of abusing a student; false drug violations on school property and ultimately the loss of her left leg as the union seeks to stop Rachel’s desire to help her students become exceptional.
Learn how Rachel fights back and creates the Sinclair Academy, a private educational system that the union has no control over. No longer does the union want to stop Rachel from promoting accelerated learning; now the union wants her 2,500 teachers to join the teacher’s union. See how far the teacher’s union will go in an attempt to force union membership and what a young, tenacious teacher will do in saying, “No”.

Title: Why the Letter Y Joined the Vowel Club

Author: Marian Burmeff

Release Date: 26 Setember 2014

Goodreads | Amazon 

Summary: 

The VOWEL CLUB started when the letters, A, E, I, O, and U wanted to use a special sound when they were alone in a word.

They decided on the name of their club at their first meeting. Some of the choices, were TLC (The Letter Club), TCOS (The Club of Five) and others but they all agreed on the word VOWEL (Very Ordinary Words Everyone Loves). They agreed that everyone should love and be loved.

It’s a long story about how the “Y” joined the vowel club. It happened shortly after the letters A, E, I, O, and U officially decided on their name and their motto.

Book Blitz: Take the Bullying by the Horns by Hunter Dan

Title: Take the Bullying by the Horns

Author: Hunter Dan

Release Date: 14 October 2016

Goodreads | Amazon 

Summary: 

I created this story for children who are just reaching school age. I believe in teaching children before they enter first grade what bullying is and teaching them that it is unacceptable behavior and how to end it regardless of what the bully says to them. That is when I think it’s the best time in a child’s life to introduce to them what it is before they experience it for real.

Book Blitz: Dream Diary by Ben Sheldon

banner 1.0

Cover

Title: Dream Diary

Author: Ben Sheldon

Release Date: 26 August 2016

Goodreads | Amazon 

Summary: 

Ben Sheldon’s diary, which he kept over many years, takes you on a series of fascinating, fantastic, and unusual adventures that he enjoyed–or suffered through–while sleeping.

He also shares the dreams of a former roommate, Adrian, who he lived with from 1971 to 1973.

Sheldon recorded his own dreams shortly after waking up, and he’d listen to Adrian’s tales during morning chats while they were fresh in his memory. Some of the dreams are hilarious, others are disturbing, and some are downright unusual.

In one dream, Adrian is at a party when he passes Sonny and Cher having sex on top of a piano. The scene irks him so much that he says, -How could you do this, with all these people watching?- Sonny nonchalantly continues with his sex act, but they both seem bored. Cher is even chewing gum and blowing bubbles.

In another dream, the author finds himself in a drug-infested ghetto. All of a sudden, someone rushes over to him trying to give him -a fix.- He stumbles around before leaving in a hurry.

Whether you study, interpret, and evaluate dreams or want to enjoy a series of unexpected adventures, you’ll love the Dream Diary
