More from my own experiences as a teacher, and experiences of
teacher co-workers, friends who teach at other schools, etc.
Professional books I've read do of course include teacher
experiences, but my own experience teaching, and experience
of others with whom I've had many education-related
discussions, add up to far more than could be found in any
The books, because of the fact that they deal with situations
in other locations and therefore situations which may be
outside local experience, supplement that. But if you are
asking solely about teachers' experiences rather than
educational theory or other types of professional reading, I
can't say any one book in particular stands out, and
certainly none stand out above actual experience.
Beyond that it also depends on what you're looking for -
elementary? secondary? regular ed? special ed? i.e. Freeman &
Freeman are good about including interesting anecdotes from
their own experiences and case studies regarding teaching ELL
students at the secondary level, but that may not be what
you're looking for.
