You Are Thinking of Teaching? is a lovely essay on the consideration of teachin. It asks those who are thinking of teaching to ask questions, to ponder their decision, and to pursue the information they need to make a reasoned choice. There is nothing like it in the professional literature, which makes it all the more valuable.?Pat Walsey, senior researcher for change, Coalition of Essential Schools
