product description

“Teachers inspire the smallest hearts to grow big enough to change the world.” —Paula Fox

Part of our intention in publishing our gift book for educators, Heart of a Teacher, was to honor the teachers who had made a difference in our lives. Ms. Bridges, who taught the fourth grade, was amazing! She made learning so much fun and made all of us feel as though we could do anything we wanted to do. Years later, the impact she made on me as a young child is still evident in my current success.

As Andy Rooney once said, “Most of us end up with no more than five or six people that remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.” Why is that? It’s because of the heart of a teacher. A heart made of generosity, joy, wisdom, compassion, patience, and purpose.

About Author

PAULA J. FOX describes herself as a lifetime student whose passion is to continue learning and applying godly wisdom in her life so that she can share it with others. Her desire is to inspire and motivate others to live a life of purpose and significance. She is a teacher at heart with a degree in special education and 35 years of experience teaching and leading all ages from preschool through adult.

She and her husband, Larry, have three grown children, and she is now able to devote more of her time to writing. Besides being a teacher and leader in her own church, she is the founder and leader of L’dor (Ladies’ day of renewal), a home-based Bible study for women. This ministry, which began over 25 years ago, meets weekly in homes where they worship together through songs and scriptures, sharing and studying God’s Word together. Paula loves researching and writing her own lessons for L’dor as well as writing poetry and prose. She also enjoys speaking to women’s groups and retreats.

    Outstanding!
    I purchased Heart of a Teacher as a gift for my daughter, a first year teacher and carrying on the legacy of my mother who was a teacher for 40 years. It's the type of book that has you smiling, laughing and crying all at the same time. A MUST read for all teachers. It serves as a constant reminder as to the WHY they teach.

      Heart of a Teacher
      Actually I purchased this book "Heart of a Teacher" as a gift for my daughter, who teaches young children. I did read the book and watched the video before I gave it to her; and enjoyed it very much. My favorite book and video is "The Dash". I think I have probably watched it about 25 times and shared it with family and friends more than 100 times. I praise Simple Truths for their inspirational books and videos. Thank you.

        Perfect!
        I love Heart of a Teacher! It is touching to me as a parent and has been the ideal Teacher Appreciation Day and end of school year gift for my children's' teachers.

          Highly Recommended!
          This book depicts the 'Heart of a Teacher' more closely than anything I've read before! If I could, I would purchase a copy of it for each teacher in my school. It would be a wonderful tool for teaching, and a useful reminder of what teaching is really about. THANK YOU!
