  • Penny Kittle s The Greatest Catch A Life in Teaching, is a necessary treasure for teachers in all stages of their teaching career Kittle s words made me laugh, cry, feel empowered, and reinstate my desire to be the best teacher I can be Her book is a collection of narratives describing different teaching scenarios she had with different students Each chapter focuses on a different student and their story line for better or worse Kittle s reflections on students who she helped succeed and those t [...]



  • A really helpful and insightful guide into teaching I really liked her anecdotes and how not all of them ended perfectly I appreciated the way she was able to admit her mistakes and talk about the ways in which we can t give our students everything that they may need A nice glimpse and hopefully realistic into the world of teaching.


  • So glad I read this right before the school year started It is a great reminder to pay attention to the small things, focus on each student as much as possible and remember that we do good and important work.


  • I read this a little at a time I prefer to read books of essays like that so each essay can sink in and settle before you read the next one Each one of these pieces about a moment in teaching by Penny Kittle is a gem What I appreciated most is that they weren t all wrapped up in a tidy, pretty ribbon A lot of times books about teaching seem to me completely unrealistic because of how perfect they sound the kids are perfect, the teacher is perfect, the school is perfect, blah, blah, blah, and tha [...]

  • This is one of those books I closed and then held tightly The emotion that Penny Kittle feels for her craft and for her students is easily absorbed by the reader I m so thankful she wrote these essays I am rejuvenated and energized to begin another year of the greatest profession The Greatest Catch awaits




  • Re reading this It is like visiting with a friend who knows just how to ask questions about classrooms and teaching always leads me to a place of re seeing.


  • I enjoyed this book it was a quick read but easy to relate I wanted to read it after the quote about professionalism came from this book.



  • Kittle explores the craft of teaching and the power of teaching writing well I needed her words at this time of year.
