Reading and Reviewing

I read a great book ... an honest story of a teacher's year in the classroom. The author, Jeffrey Penn May, tells the story in the teacher's voice, providing insight into the many challenges faced but often unseen and unrecognized by the general public.

I've posted reviews at Amazon and at Goodreads of this book. Here's what I've written:

No Teacher Left StandingNo Teacher Left Standing by Jeffrey Penn May

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a true to life story of one year in an elementary teacher's life ... and in reading it, I felt as though I would have written it myself in just such a way. Believable characters, all too true situations, a passing admiring glimpse of nature ... You could not read this book and not come away with a better understanding of both the pressures faced and the tenacity required in a teaching career today. This is a validating read for teachers, and an enlightening one for those considering the career. Well done!

Jeffrey is offering this book, and several  other titles, as ninety nine cent kindle books. This is something that is happening more and more often now, as authors work at building an audience base. As more readers invest the small amount and discover that the author tells a story well, the belief is that books written by this author will then be more recognized, and purchased.

I've purchased three books from this author, each for $.99 cents. I've found that I like his style and like the voices of his characters; I'll continue reading his books in the future.


  1. Thank you, Terry, for sharing your review. I am a former educator (almost 30 years) and still work with teachers on a consultant basis. Definitely plan on checking out Jeffrey's books.

  2. Hi Sharla,
    I'm glad you stopped by to read here, and appreciate your comment. Jeff has quite a few books at Amazon, and all presently priced at 99 cents ... quality at a great price. Please let him know what you think of his books. I have a few on education there as well, and have the paperbacks on sale at my website: Good back to school readings :-)


Welcome! Thank you for reading here. I look forward to your comment!
