An honest, humorous book for both new and experienced teachers offering wise advice based on hard experience,  the occasional big mistake, and an even bigger heart.   "Biebel's sardonic wit is mellowed by a genuine love for kids and teaching...A Whitman-like sensibility flows through his stories of teaching, learning, and life." ~ Susan J. Wegmann, Ph.D.   "It's complicated, this teacher thing," says the author. "But in the end it's about honesty, openness, failures, and successes, and the myriad of emotions that accompany them all. Ultimately it's about putting the kids first, which I've tried to do. It's been a long journey but if I had to do it over again, I'd do it over again."

His love for the outdoors provides a backdrop for many of the lessons shared in this book.
