Teaching Is The Hardest Job You Will Ever Love! is a realistic guide that can help the high school teacher and community. It includes ways to maintain one's health, how to balance one's personal and school life, and how to interact in a better, successful manner. In order to become successful, it is important for high school teachers to include personal fulfillment so that students will ultimately learn not only the subject matter but also how to be self-sufficient, be self-accountable, and learn with others. While students need to learn how to accept their learning and their grades, parents or guardians also need to be able to be a support system for their young adults with encouragement when needed and with praise when earned.
Steven Sonntag has been a mentor teacher, his district's high school teacher of the year, the language chairperson, and an accreditation chairperson in his thirty-two years in education.

Editorial Reviews

In this sampler of practical ideas, Sonntag has collected suggestions to help teachers navigate the demands and challenges of teaching. By proposing clever titles throughout the book's chapters, Sonntag quickly attracts the attention of the reader. The next step is to humbly present the ideas for consideration and move on. Each chapter is short, allowing a suggestion, tip, or life experience to dominate so that the reader can easily absorb the advice and move to the next tip. This structure serves to assist the educator who doesn't have a leisurely reading schedule and may have only 15 to 30 minutes here or there. One premise that seems to be woven into many chapters is that the teacher is meant to be a strong, positive role model. This can be found in many chapters, but the one chapter that this reviewer particularly liked is titled "That's Neat!" It emphasizes the connection between neatness and high expectations. The work of schooling children is becoming more and more demanding, and Sonntag encourages educators to embrace this guide to facilitate making a difference in the lives of students-the noble goal of so many in education. Summing Up: Recommended.
