After 50 years of teaching, Pat Kozyra has now acted upon the many requests and encouraging suggestions from family, friends, and colleagues that she write a book about her many years in the teaching profession. This seasoned professional has so many Tips and Tidbits to offer, so much to tell, and so much to share. Pat has had an exemplary career and has taught in many areas including: primary grades, vocal music, art resource, gifted education (15 years), preschool coordinator, English as a Second Language, and courses in special education at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Her decision to write this book was made easy as she began her 50th year in the classroom. She felt the time was right to celebrate this milestone by sharing with parents and teachers important and useful information she has learned in her distinguished career.
