The Greatest Catch: A Life in TeachingThe Greatest Catch: A Life in Teaching by Penny Kittle

Oh how I wish I had known that Penny Kittle was in North Conway when I was living in Wolfeboro. ( I also wish I had known Ralph Fletcher was in the Dover area when I was teaching in Barrington!) I'm only through the introduction, but I'm already encouraged and re-inspired as a teacher. I love the parallels Penny is drawing between fishing and teaching. They are spot on. I can't wait to get further into this book. It's not just a feel good about your calling book, either. Penny has included Craft Notes that demonstrate how she composed her essays so that the reader can use the same strategies for their classroom life.
