Teaching, like many service professions, requires the appropriate interpersonal skills. Although academic expertise is, and always will be, the foundation of instruction, educators must be able to translate their knowledge both affectively and effectively in order to better inform their students. It's All About People Skills provides teachers with information upon which they that can improve themselves in the classroom, calling to attention the necessity for interpersonal skills in order be successful in front of the classroom.  Offering educators 'print-to-practice' instructional strategies, models of classroom management plans, and planning modules, It's All About People Skills will not only improve teachers' instructional delivery, and therefore engage more students in a positive school culture, but will also prepare teachers to meet the challenges of contemporary schooling-such as adapting to technology, working with home-schooled children, and addressing school violence.
Dr. Jerry H. Boyle has spent over four decades in field of education.  His professional experiences include nearly 30 years as a school principal, 10 years as Executive Director of a Professional Development Training Center, teaching part time at the University of Cincinnati at both graduate and undergraduate levels.
