My first year of teaching was pretty rough, but I was able to turn that nightmarish first year into an enjoyable and successful 2nd year. I am thrilled to share with you the lessons I learned so that you can experience a similar transformation.

While this book is written specifically for Christian teachers, it will benefit any teacher, regardless of your faith (or lack thereof). If you’re not a Christian, you can choose to simply skip over the Scriptural sections. Or, you can go ahead and read them – you might just find them life-changing!
"I literally just had to force myself to stop reading because I was neglecting other things I was supposed to be doing this evening! Linda's writing style is captivating and entertaining! She will have you laughing at times, cringing at the stories of what NOT to do, and then she will challenge you with a biblical truth or an action item. I wish I had a book like this when I was a teacher."
- Anna K., teacher
"I've found that so many "teacher books" are high on theory, low on practicality. Not so with Linda's book. She describes situations that I've seen playing out in my classroom time and again, and then applies a Biblical principle to that situation. But the great thing is, she doesn't stop there. She goes on to give very practical advice about what to say, what to do, and how to follow through....wish I could have read this after my student teaching!
-Kate O., English teacher
"Reading Create Your Dream Classroom is much like sitting down with a great master teacher and listening to them give you their hard-earned wisdom one day at a time"
-Eric Reenders, author of Rooftop Perspectives
"If you are a new teacher or a veteran, this book gives thoughtful insight and great suggestions for managing a classroom. Many resources aimed at teachers are heavy on theory. This book gives ideas and strategies that can be implemented immediately and easily to produce real change in classroom dynamics. I have been teaching for 20 years and plan to make some adjustments in classroom procedures after reading this book!"
-Sandi O., science teacher
