Reviews of They Call Me Mom

4.9 out of 5.0 stars on Amazon (28 reviews)

“This book is a must-read for all new teachers and those teachers that need a reminder they are human! Mr. Springer educates others in his easy-to-read, story-like, first-hand manuscript. You will laugh, cry, and get motivated to be the best educator you can. After reading this, I have a better outlook on relationships with my colleagues and am reminded to savor every moment.” –Tami Beall (Principal)

“I love this book! It has tried and true pointers for new teachers in a completely forthright way. Seasoned educators will identify with Pete’s recollections as well. The most important features, however, are his positive, honest, and encouraging attitudes towards the profession of teaching. It’s a must read for anyone working with students or considering a career in education.” –Barbara Saul (Teacher)

“They Call Me Mom is an easy-to-read, entertaining, and informative book. I’m not a teacher, but learned all about the teaching profession including the daily rigors of the classroom; the constant communication with students, parents, and colleagues, and the increasing demands placed on teachers due to budget shortfalls. Teachers can be counselors, nurses, coaches, handymen, and even reluctant sex education lecturers (as Mr. Springer hilariously described). His message is clear: a good teacher is a friend, mentor, and role model, inspiring our youth to positively impact our communities. I definitely plan on giving They Call Me Mom to a teacher I know, for not passing along his message would be a disservice to educators.” –Bruce Shaffer (Parent)

“What an insightful book written by one of the very best! Pete was not only my teacher, he also taught both of my children. Pete’s detailed writing clearly expresses how to make a difference in the classroom! It also reminds all of us how to treat others and give of ourselves unselfishly. This book is very representative of the talented teacher and human being Pete is. You will not be disappointed.” –Lori Dusi (Former Student)
