Calling Joyful Teachers!

I love what I do.  I find great joy in coming to work every day and feel very passionate about teaching. 
I know so many of you feel the same way.

My colleague, Patricia Reinhardt, and I have begun work on a book about finding happiness and joy in teaching.  In order to lay a foundation for our work, we need to gather information from a wide variety of teachers.  If you would be interested in being part of our research by completing a survey, please contact me and provide me with your email address.  We will then send the survey to you.

Please pass this along to other teachers you think may be interested.
We are looking forward to hearing and learning from you!
