The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

To Teachers, With Love
selected by Jeannette Hulick

Once again it's September, and for the first time in twenty-some years I am not returning to a classroom. After years of schooling, then teaching, then more school, I find myself somewhat at a loss. This fall I have no freshly-sharpened pencils, no books to buy, no lessons to plan. In reflecting on the teachers I've had over the years and the teacher I myself have been, I realize that what stands out most are the relationships I developed with my teachers and my students over the years. When teachers believe that their students are special, communicate this to them daily, and help them find the internal motivation to grow and learn, powerful positive connections are forged and miraculous things can happen. This list is in honor of those special teachers and for the students who desperately need them.

--Jeannette Hulick, Editorial Assistant
