“Masterfully done! Dr. Bartram’s Great Teachers: Exploring Excellence in Education provides a well-written technical framework to describe the complexities of the art of teaching combined with in-depth comprehensive biographies of eight of the most phenomenal teachers of our lifetime. The common threads revealed about the eight great teachers are fascinating. Celebrating my forty years in education, I could hardly stop reading, learning, and reflecting on my own career as a teacher. Perfect timing, Bartram’s book is the boost we need in education now! Educating and building relationships with our students is the focal point. The lessons learned from the greatest teachers featured in the book is a must-read for any educator who is serious about transforming and enhancing their teaching skills from good to great! Bravo!”

“I enjoyed reading about Coach Wootten! The chapter is well-written and presents many valuable lessons, concepts, and approaches. What a remarkable individual, teacher, and coach! There is a very important distinction between the process and product. If we embrace the process and focus on best effort and best execution of the smaller details and components the desired outcome is much more likely and more of a side-effect of great attention to detail and mission/philosophy.”

In Great Teachers we take you inside the classrooms—and the heads—of some of America’s greatest teachers, opening the door to those inspired teaching strategies that distinguish excellence in the field of education. While most of these strategies are generally known, the real secret is how they were applied by these teaching geniuses.
From Leonard Bernstein and Christa McAuliffe to Teachers of the Year across the nation and across a variety of subjects, Great Teachers invites us in to witness the historic shaping of students’ futures while unlocking their common themes and successful approaches that other teachers can employ to light that same spark in their own students. No matter the grade or discipline, Great Teachers energizes and empowers all teachers to return to our own classrooms and dare to be great.
