As a veteran educator who have seen numerous changes come and go over the years, one thing is irreplaceable: a passionate and dedicated teacher who knows how to inspire and connect with his or her students. The author clearly breaks down what many sees inexplicable. How do you wrap charisma and transformational teaching into a methodology? Mr. Sturtevant does just that! Step by step, he discusses teacher-student relationship, how an educator's self-perception may be hindering his class management, and discusses professional relationship with colleagues.
From the get go, it's clear, the author writes from the heart and gets to the core of the matter. This book looks at the Big Picture. The book easily is applicable to administrators, mentors, and parents alike. "You've Gotta Connect" should be read by every beginning teacher and veteran teachers alike. It's a gut check and a reminder of why we are in the profession: for our students. Great work Mr. Sturtevant! I will be sharing this with my colleagues and friends!
