because of mr. terupt

because of a teacher.

because of a snowball.

because of a diverse class of fifth graders.

love and forgiveness are taught,

because of mr. terupt.

It’s a book for students.

It’s a book for teachers.

It’s a book for anyone who’s ever had that special teacher who changed his life.

  1. Oh, Vasilly! How wonderful that you're reading that! This one is a much more serious tone, but truly lovely. I saw that a boy in my class was reading it, and when I saw that John Irving endorsed it I added it to my nook. Now the boy and I will have lunch to talk about it together one day this week. I can't wait to discuss it with one of my students.


  2. I had a special Teacher, I know I've banged on in the,past about my schooling, but that was secondary school. Junior school I had a teacher, Mrs Steel, she was a young amateur dramatics fanatic & a,bookfiend (my first encounter), & I think that I in that special pre-teen way loved her,
    PS. I found a new word, doesn't have a meaning (I think) but found it on your word verification – Slabugie, loving the sound of it!
