Hey Teacher, You've Got Chalk on Your Pants is a "teaching mentor to go" for today's generation of passionate, new teachers. We give it to you as straight as that student who just walked up to tell you your breath stank. This book covers everything new teachers need to know as they take their first teetering steps along the path to Teacherhood, ranging from age-old questions like "What should they call you?" to more delicate issues facing teachers like "What do you do when a student comes to class high?" The book's combination of anecdotes, heartfelt advice, and humor makes for a fast-paced, accessible, and often hilarious read. At least that's what our mothers tell us. This is the book we wish we were handed along with that giant pile of Scantrons our first day of teaching. "Bomphray and Scaccia have put together a practical, common-sense guide to everything you'll never expect when you're a new teacher. I rediscovered in each punchy chapter more reasons for why I still do what I do." Laura Collura, Principal Cape Town, South Africa "The honesty, humor, and heart that flows from this book is unparalleled. It should be required reading in every teacher prep program in the country. Do not enter a classroom before reading this book." Megan McCoy-Milan, Teacher Hayward, CA "Hey Teacher, You've Got Chalk On Your Pants is an honest, forgiving, and irreverent offering to new teachers trying to navigate the challenges and contradictions of working in urban schools. I would definitely give this book to someone just starting out in the profession-every other page contains a lesson that I wish I hadn't learned the hard way." Marisa Traylor, Teacher Oakland, CA
