As a workshop leader and writer, best-selling author Julia Thompson has taught thousands of teachers how to create student-centered classrooms, thrive during that important first year of teaching, motivate reluctant learners, prevent discipline problems, and sustain high expectations for the success of their students as well as for themselves. In each of her books, she presents classroom-tested ideas, activities, and strategies designed to make each school day a successful one.
Recently retired after forty years as a classroom teacher herself, Julia focuses her advice on the practical aspects of a teacher's busy professional life. This extensive experience and the insights she has gained as a teacher and as a teacher trainer have shaped her beliefs about the daily challenges that can confront even the most steadfast teachers.
