Hachette Back-to-School Book Giveaway

I don't know about you, but I'm starting to think that summer is almost over and the kids will be going back to school before I know it. Depending on the day, that can either make me very happy or a little weepy!

Hachette Book Group wants to help their readers celebrate their shared love of learning/reading with a very special giveaway of five thought-inspiring books for parents.

Here are the books that you can win:

1. NURTURESHOCK by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman
2. CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD-GRADE KIND by Phillip Done
3. IN CHEAP WE TRUST by Lauren Weber
4. THE LOVE REVOLUTION by Joyce Meyer
5. SIX PIXELS OF SEPARATION by Mitch Joel

I will be picking up to five winners depending on how many entries I receive for this contest. For every 20 entries, I will pick one winner. That means I need a total of 100 entries or more to pick five winners! If you would like to win a set of these books, all you have to do is leave a comment with a valid e-mail address telling me your a little bit about your favorite teacher. To double or triple your chances, you can blog and/or tweet about this contest with a link back to this post. This contest will be open until September 6th at 11:59 p.m. EST, and I will notify the winners the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. and Canada mailing addresses only -- no p.o. boxes please. Good luck!

Hmm, my favorite teacher was my accounting teacher in high school. He let me do all my work for the semester in the first month and then just sit there and read books during class for the rest of the semester! He was so cool! He also introduced me to the book The Ditches of Edison County (a spoof on The Bridges of Madison County).

My favourite teacher was my grade 11 English teacher. He always wore purple and was super-intimidating but he was open-minded and knew how to challenge his students. He marked based on the merit/quality of the work, even if a student's viewpoint differed from his own.

My favorite teacher was my high school math teacher - unlike so many others he encouraged me to do my best despite being a girl - seemed that many teachers didn't think girls could do math or science. He encouraged me so I felt like I could do what ever I wanted if I worked at it.

My favorite teacher was my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Minger. She was "Grandma like" and greeted us with a hug every day. She was a teacher who showed kindness, but when you did something wrong you knew it and were ashamed. I loved learning to write cursive (funny that I don't really write that way anymore), and just wanted to do everything right just for her. I have still kept in touch with her as an adult and is still just the sweetest lady I know.

I had a few favorite teachers in my scholastic career, but there were only a couple who left a truly lasting impression. I had an AP English teacher who liked to add fun to our days by teaching us the meaning behind an individual word or phrase. I wrote down every single mini lesson on those things and still have them. They were so interesting, and just made me want to know more. Those days have stuck with me even to today. Now THAT is "leaving a lasting impression."

Thank you...

My elementary school librarian, Ms. Matthews was awesome. My mom volunteered in the library and she knew I was a great reader. For two summers, she let me take home some of the new books selections to read and let her know what I thought. Guess I didn't realize how much that would influence me in the future!

I've had quite a few excellent teachers, but my favourite teach was Mrs. Eberhardt for Social Studies 20 (11th Grade) and 30 (12th Grade). She taught me to think critically and love the world around me by exploring history, media, arts, languages and politics and the many diverse connections between all those fields. She showed me humanity and how to be a good world citizen... Teachers are HEROES!

I was fortunate to have some very special teachers throughout the years who made me "think outside the box". They also made me feel like an individual, not just another student. I often think of them, and I am quite saddened that several of them have passed away. Their lessons in life, as well as education, live on.

We learned cursive writing in third grade and she had me tilt my paper the opposite direction from my right-handed classmates since I am left-handed. I have always been thankful for this because everyone says I have pretty handwriting and my wrist is not cocked at a strange angle. Thank you, Mrs. Stout!

Paula said.... My favorite teacher was Mrs. Nellie Anderson. She taught Home Ec and Advanced food and clothing. The real things that she taught along with her class was how to become a warm loving parent and the importance of being able to provide a warm loving enviorment for a family and how important family values and traditions are . She was an amazing woman. It was so hard for anyone who knows her or had her as a teacher to beleive that she was raised in an Childrens home. If all teachers could leave thier students with the values she taught outside of the curriculium the world would be a better place.

my favorite teacher was my Property and Civil Law teacher - he made the law of obligations and contracts fascinating.

I would love these books! My favorite teacher was my 3rd grade teacher. She tried to make the classroom FUN! We would have spelling bees. She also had a big box of goodies/prizes in her closet. Whenever you got a great grade on a test, or did something special/good in class, she would give out a ticket. When you had a certain number of tickets, you could trade it in for a prize. I got one of my first record albums that way! (Yes, I'm old enough to have had records)

Wow, the teacher I remember most is still impacting my life today. She was my high school Calculus teacher.

I have several favorite teachers, but one that I really stands out was one of my 7th grade teachers, Randy Gallimore.

My favourite teacher was my grade 1 teacher. When I got glasses in first grade, she made sure that I didn't feel uncomfortable and that the other kids didn't make a big deal out of it. And they didn't.

My favorite teacher was my mother who gave me the love for books and read to us every night. It was a daily ritual that I loved and I carried on this tradition with my own children.

My favorite teacher was my eighth grade English teacher, because he believed in me! We stayed in touch until I graduated from high school.

I've never really thought about "my favorite teacher". There were many I liked & few that I disliked.

For argument's sake, I'll choose Mrs. Austin who taught me ninth grade & eleventh grade English. She began the process in me of challenging, questioning, understanding words. She introduced me to plays, opera, Shakespeare, and more. I'm very thankful for her role.

My favorite teacher was a teacher I had in college. Had been going for Psych but then switched to Tourism. Had to take Psych 101, and he was an English teacher just following the book. When he found out I knew a bit he gave me an active roll in class discussions and never took offence. He even gave me a letter of recommendation after pointing out how pleased he was to have me in the class and was supportive in many other ways.

I had this biology teacher who was really strange. He always wore these shirts that looked like a pharmacist should be wearing. I really like him and the class.

I had a teacher in grade 3 named Miss Zettel. Miss Zettel knew that my family situation wasn't that great and always made me feel special. She even had a birthday party for me at school, with cake and presents. She moved away to Ottawa to get married but I still think of her often.

I had many good teachers, but my favorite was my High School English and Literature teacher. She taught us so much about grammer, and introduced her classes to poetry. Miss Smith was barely five feet tall in heels, but she could quell the biggest boy in the class with a look.

I have many favorite teachers, but the one that stands out was Biology because our class went on nature walks through the woods. The girls stayed close to the teach, but most of the boys wandered off even though a quiz about the genus and species of the plants he pointed out was imminent. This class complimented my love of health and sciences.

One of my favorite teachers was my 9th grade Pre-Algebra teacher. Not only was he super nice, but he taught me math in way that I actually understood for the first time in my life! Amazing! I have never forgotten Mr. Fox!

while in the school year, my favorite teachers were probably the easy ones who let kids slide a bit and were fun. By the time I finished college there was no doubt that certain teachers were more adept teachers. One high school science teacher in particular had a real knack for presenting the same subject matter in a different perspective without losing any of the class. The good teachers had a love for teaching.

As soon as I read "favorite teacher" in your post and started to reflect, Mr. G from sixth grade shot to my mind. I was particularly hard-working that year and he was one of those fresh-faced newbie teachers with lots of enthusiasm and lots of encouragement to give a strong student.

My favorite teacher was my second grade teacher. Her daughter went to a different school and somehow I ended up being her penpal. Then we got to meet up and I went over to her house a few times. I just remember her being a very sweet teacher who obviously cared about all of her students.
