I always wanted to be teacher, and was so excited for my first real teaching position that I could hardly think straight. But a few months in, I realized teaching was a whole lot harder than I thought it would be.
Too many of my students just weren’t listening to me, and many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I didn’t want to admit it (even to myself), I wasn’t enjoying teaching. It wasn’t just the “you need to pull it together” meeting with my principal and the “I can’t face my class” 7:45am crying fit in the back hallway. It was the everyday struggle, the constant feeling that I was failure in my own classroom.
Praise the Lord, He didn’t let me stay there. Through the advice of trusted mentors, a much-needed book, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned how to keep my students’ attention, and I started to gain the confidence that I could actually do this.
As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching my next class. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God soften hearts and change lives right in front of me. No matter what challenges you’re facing, you too can rekindle your passion for teaching. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.
"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., former 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
"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
