Additional Information

Russ Fee's "A Dash of Expectation: Poems of the Classroom", draws you into the humorous and human drama of the elementary-school classroom. These accessible poems put you at a front-row desk or into the heart of a teacher. Reminiscent of Fulghum's All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, the book captures the freshness, vitality, and wonder of children's observations and the keen observations of a caring teacher. The children spill stories of innocence and wisdom, from the shock of sex education in fifth grade, to the first grader, still best friends with the tyke who prompted his fist-fight suspension. And Fee, a former attorney and now a teacher, serves as a willing scribe. Perfect as a book for teachers, parents, or anyone who has survived elementary school, the pages offer potent insights. If you are in the mood for chuckles, some surprises, and perhaps even tears, Fee's book will not dash your expectations.
