I am proud to have received so much positive feedback about the book.  Take a look at the kinds of messages I find in my inbox...

I just wanted to thank you for your positive advice.  I ended up getting a job in a wonderful school whose philosophy reflects my own.  I'm not sure if I would have gotten the position if it weren't for your positive advice ... Again, I appreciate all of your help!

Thank you so much for recommending that ebook (Guide to Getting a Teaching Job).

The interview questions and answers were awesome and I've been looking for this book for a long time.

Thank you!

I would just like to thank you for the ebook you wrote!! I always imagined my first interview being a total disaster, but it went great! I didn't feel nervous at all when I got in there because I felt so prepared!  Michigan's teacher job market is awful right now and I when I saw there was an opening at an amazing district, I was so excited! That's when I found your book and started studying! I ended up getting my dream job! (and on my first try....thanks to you!)....Thank you so much again!! I really recommend that anyone who is going to interview should get this ASAP! It's definitely worth the $20 for a job in the end!

Hi Tim,

I thoroughly enjoyed your book.  It is very informative and full of great advice.  I especially liked the interviews with other teachers at the end of the book.  Great information! . . . Again, I enjoyed your ebook very much and have been using it when putting my resume together and my "flash cards" of interview questions.  I have recommended your website to some student teacher friends and will continue to do so as I have found it to be very worthwhile.
