Are you one of those rare people who has always known exactly what you wanted to do with your life? Are you a teacher or considering a career in education? Are you involved in a relationship that somehow isn’t right but that you just can’t manage to escape? Does your career provide solace from a difficult personal life? Do you struggle with the concept of fate and choice and what is ultimately best for you versus what well-meaning others believe is better? Do you enjoy reading about the struggles others face because you learn from their mistakes? If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, this book is for you. Elizabeth Anthony always knew she wanted to be a teacher, but her determination to be a wife and a mother as well as an outstanding teacher drew her into conflicts and a series of lessons inside and outside of her classroom, her haven. Ms. Anthony contends that she learned more from her students than they learned from her, and that learning provides the framework for this memoir of a thirty-year-plus career as a secondary English teacher and administrator. The author’s hope is that readers will benefit from the lessons she learned the hard way so that they might avoid some of the mistakes that threatened her sanity and even her life.
