This week’s #TeacherTuesday, Sharon Benaderet-Cohen, used her vast experience as a teacher for general education, handicapped, disabled, and disturbed children as well as her certification as a consultant and case manager, to change lives over her 44-year career in education. Drawing upon her experience, including a stint at Richboro and Wrightstown Elementary Schools in Council Rock School District, Sharon just released a book entitled, “Touch a Life,” focusing on “Inspirational stories on teaching to the good in all types of students.” This moving guide for teachers, student teachers and parents offers a collection of inspirational stories about how she found the “good” in each student and taught to that “good.” But more than that, it’s a lesson in kindness and how one teacher can truly make a difference.
Says Sharon, “Teaching is more than an art. It’s a way of working with mutual communication. No matter how challenging a student may be, treating him or her with love, kindness and respect will make him soar to new heights.”
Her most recent experience as an adjunct professor at Penn State Abington where she developed the curriculum for a class on Educational Theory/Multiple Perspectives and supervised student teachers in Bensalem, Central Bucks School District, North Penn School District, and Abington School District, motivated her to write the book so that others could share in her hard-fought knowledge.
You can check it out and purchase this poignant book full of actionable strategies through Amazon.
Let us know who else is doing remarkable things and we’ll feature that educator in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday profile.
