Sinopsis: I used to hate it when my teachers complained about money. Now I see why they did.Jim Kohl.Jim Kohl didnt always know what he wanted to do, but ever since he found himself he wanted to teach. He never wanted to be part of corporate life, he wanted to be there for the kids and help them to learn to think for themselves. He took a job at an inner city school teaching seventh-grade English, and he was always happy standing in front of his students in Room 5.Five years into teaching, Jim came to the sad realization that a teachers salary was not going to support his family of five in Californias Silicon Valley, one of the most expensive housing areas in the country. Jim was faced with one of the toughest decisions of his life. He was forced to choose between the job he was born to do and the family that he loved. Join Jim for an insiders look into Californias public school system. Laugh along with him and the wonderful children he had the opportunity to work with. See first hand the poverty experienced by the practitioners of our most noble profession.
Biografía del autor: Jim Kohl was born in Philadelphia, and lived in New Jersey before he moved to San Jose, CA when he was 5. He has a degree in English, and still lives in San Jose with his wife and three children. Jim enjoys playing guitar and is writing his second book.
