Give Them All A's, is an upbeat, fun and hilarious look at the teaching profession in the USA. The book gives the underrated teaching gurus who educate the American youth a few pointers to keep a smile on their faces. Mr. James explains his suggestions on how to be a successful teacher in a down to earth fashion that will appeal to all readers. The teaching strategies detailed in the book are sure to have some educational experts shaking their heads in dismay. Meanwhile, teachers who teach in the classroom will be nodding in agreement. The book is a honest look at the obstacles teachers face daily inside a school building. Whether you agree with Mr. James' teaching strategies or not, Give Them All A's is a clear honest read that will have the reader thinking and laughing.


Mr. James explains that a successful teacher is one who can adapt to any situation.  Mr. James also takes the readers who do not work in the educational field into a school setting.  Mr. James’ unapologetic explanations take parents into the educational world their children attend daily.  Though the book is written for teacher encouragement, anyone can learn from the information in the book.  Parents will get a good look at themselves from a teacher viewpoint.  School administration and districts will also get a chance to view themselves from the viewpoint of a teacher who is a self proclaimed success.  

Give Them All A’s! is a rare book that uses comedy to relay an upbeat and positive message to teachers around the USA.  Whether people agree or disagree with Mr. James’ technique, if they work in a school they will say he is right.  Maybe not 100 percent correct but right on some points.  “If I could bat 1000, I wouldn’t be teaching. I’d be playing for the New York Yankees making 50 million a year.”  - Frank James IV
