How do you find the “good” in every child…and teach to it? Sharon Benadaret-Cohen’s book, Touch a Life illustrates her philosophy of “teaching to the good,” through inspirational stories from her 40-plus years in education.
“Teaching is more than an art. It is 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 them soar to new heights,” explains Benadaret-Cohen.
Benadaret-Cohen’s experience includes teaching regular education, special education, working as a Learning Disabilities/Teacher Consultant, an Adjunct College Professor, and a Supervisor of Student Teachers. In each position she has been inspired by students who, overcame overwhelming odds to reach for the highest heights.
