a challenging but charming third grader, gain control of his behavior so that he and his classmates can learn—and you'll come away with strategies you can use to help the Sammy in your own classroom.
Caltha takes readers into her classroom through rich stories, complemented with journal entries sharing her struggles, triumphs, and "Aha!" moments as Sammy's teacher. Through her sympathetic eyes, we experience Sammy's defiance, angry outbursts, and baffling responses to stress.
By example, Caltha shows us how to help all children succeed in school.
