Praise for The Teacher's Calendar from some of our nation's best educators:
'A wonderful resource to supplement our required curriculum!'
Melinda Day Webster, Tennessee Teacher of the Year, 2002
'I work with gifted and high-achieving fourth and fifth graders, and they actually use The Teacher's Calendar more than I do! I leave it out with our reference materials for them to peruse when they are done with class assignments I even put out the editions from previous years, since the information is different from year to year. The kids especially like the Internet links to find special facts about a given day of the year.'
Tracy Callard, Kansas Teacher of the Year, 2002
"I see this as an absolutely necessary tool no matter what your subject area or grade level. The information contained in the index alone is worth the price of this book!"
Alexis Ludewig, Wisconsin Teacher of the Year, 2002
