Thanks for Chucking that at the Wall Instead of Me
An informative and reflective study of teaching at-risk students, Thanks for Chucking That at the Wall Instead of Me is a window into what many classroom teachers don’t get to see in their whirlwind vision of a disruptive student. One teacher’s experience is shared in a way that all teachers will relate to, on both a professional and personal level. The book offers a glimpse into real lives and the pain, struggles and emotion beneath the behaviour of “bad” kids.

Monica Nawrocki has written a very personal and eloquent expose of working with at-risk school children. In a compelling narrative, the author provides us with an engaging and passionate glimpse of school culture and the ups and down of teaching at-risk students within the public school environment.
This easy-to-read book taught me several valuable lessons, provided insights into the minds of at-risk students, and offered numerous new strategies using compassion, humour and positive reinforcement.
