Summary The dream of teaching is that a career in teaching can be fascinating, meaningful, inspiring, and rewarding. The reality of teaching is that a career in teaching can be exhausting, frustrating, heart-breaking, and disappointing. How can the dream endure and thrive while the reality is confronted and mastered? The author guides prospective teachers through an analysis of the profession they are considering and of their match with that profession. For one who is already in a teaching career, this book gives the reader an opportunity to reflect on progress that has been made, problems that have been encountered, and how to hold onto the dream of teaching while facing the increasingly complex reality of teaching
