What a Long Strange It’s Been
by Dr. Jeffrey W. Neal
Based on a life in education, What a Long Strange It’s Been details the joys, struggles, and heartbreak of navigating years as a dedicated educator. It also examines the shooting death of a beloved teacher at the hands of a fourteen-year-old student, its aftermath, and the school community’s recovery. As shootings, particularly, at schools show no signs of stopping, there is a lesson to be learned. Ultimately, the author hopes readers enjoy this celebration of education as well as gain some insight into the recovery from PTSD.
