The aim for this project was to create a book that complements teacher preparation and is based on three premises: 1) Despite training in educational history, theory and methodology, teachers often make critical decisions in challenging classroom circumstances based on their own educational experiences and feelings.2) There are numerous ways for a teacher to deal with a given classroom issue that have equal validity in terms of their educational and social value for the student.3) The worst time for a teacher to think about how he or she would handle a situation in class is while it is happening. This book is primarily composed of 400 open-ended, reality-based questions and scenarios designed to encourage comprehensive thinking about everything involved with the teaching profession - from the reasons for entering the field to how the reader would handle challenges to his or her authority in the classroom. The questions are organized into eight separate chapters, the first of which challenges teachers to examine their own emotional and cognitive development at home and in school settings as they relate to their classroom decision-making process. Each successive chapter outlines how a self-reflective process can help teachers before, while and after they are in the classroom. The book emphasizes that there are many different ways to be an effective teacher; what's most important is that a teacher can reflect on his or her decision-making process and determine what's best for the emotional and academic interest of the children in her class.

In 2004, at age 25 and during his fourth year of teaching, Aaron S. Podolner became the youngest winner ever of the Chicago-Area Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Education. Since then he has continued to teach physics to a wide range of students at Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, IL, and every summer he conducts reflective seminars for future teachers through the Golden Apple Scholar of Illinois program.The Scholars program identifies talented high school seniors and college sophomores who have the promise and drive to be excellent teachers in high-need schools. The Golden Apple Foundation prepares them for immediate and lasting success in some of the most challenging teaching environments. In the fall of 2012, Podolner was named Golden Apple's "Director of Reflection" and now provides guidance for all of the Foundation's reflective seminar leaders.Podolner lives in a suburb of Chicago with his wife and three young daughters.
