Considering teaching a calling, the text provides prospective teachers with a look at the issues and opportunities in teaching to help them determine whether or not they have been called.

This first edition tackles the immediate issues in education, provides context for those issues with coverage of foundational concepts, helps prospective teachers understand the demands and opportunities involved in the profession, and then outlines the steps they can take to move forward on their career path. Interactive features offer survival tips, consider professional conundrums, consider important teacher dispositions, and listen to teachers talk about the issues they face in the classroom.
