This book describes how one person can make the difference in a child's life. If you ever feel like you're all alone or think that no one gets you, just imagine how your students feel. Kids want what we all want: someone to care, someone to be there for them, someone to stand up for them, cheer for them, laugh with them and, sometimes, wipe away their tears. Yes, students need our guidance to succeed academically. But they also need our help to survive and thrive in today's turbulent world. They need someone-they need you-to model the attributes that will help them win not just in school but in life as well. That's what it means to be the one for kids, and this book explains how.
