Back Cover Reading:
I love William Butler Yeats’ quote, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” When I entered the fourth grade, I met a teacher that initiated the spark I needed to light my fire. Even though she was confined to a scooter by muscular dystrophy, her love of touching the lives of kids was not restrained. She didn't see problems—only potential. That teacher changed my life…and my future.
Classroom teachers aren't the only people who can light a kid’s fire. If you are a parent, a coach, a professional, a babysitter, or anyone who spends time with kids, you have the opportunity to change a kid's life. You can be that inspiration and make a meaningful impact on a kid, so they can shine bright with passion and show their true potential.
Over twenty years in the world of education has helped me create the strategies in this book. This book is a direct result of working with outstanding people who model what it truly means to "Light the Fire" in a kid’s heart.
What are you waiting for? Time to "Light the Fire".
After working a lot and spending much less time with my kids than mom, I was looking for a way to connect with my kids. This book really covers simple steps to re-engage with them and build a solid foundational relationship.
