This book was recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad I have it for the start of my first teaching year.

This is an inspiring book that lets us all appreciate the warmth and sensitivity that can be injected into the sometimes cynical and shallow world of education. Marie Stubbs writes with gentle humour and applicable insight. This book is not just for Heads but any professional interested on how to achieve goals under difficult circumstances. I am just starting on the teaching path, but I know this book is going to see me through those difficult times.
Thanks Mrs. Stubbs!
