Every teacher begins their teaching career with a desire to make a difference in the world through making a difference in the life of a child (or perhaps thousands of children). However, most teachers quit within the first five years. Why? Because toxic systems produce toxic results.
Tales of a Toxic Teacher shares the true story of some of the shocking experiences that happen behind the closed doors of a public school classroom. This inside look at the toxic schooling system reveals the cycles of abuse that impact both teachers and students alike with destructive and even deadly results.
