Summary "Untenured, Uncensored is a tell-all guide to the euphoric highs and unimaginable lows of teaching. Mahoney and Purr present the naked truth of their own blunder-laden first few years in order to help new teachers, those who think they may want to become teachers, and those in the business of training and hiring teachers see the realities that cannot be conveyed through college classes. Through their stories, tips, and administrative analyses, the authors hope not only to save new teachers from making the same rookie mistakes but also to make administrators, college professors, and teacher trainers aware of the practical knowledge beginning teachers need before the first day of school."--BOOK JACKET.
