Saving Our Pennys
Set in the fast paced, ultra-busy world of multitasking, schools are an eruption of both heroes and victims.
One teacher, feeling overwhelmed, chooses to look beyond himself and seek a mentor, someone to show him another way. But as is the nature of all redemption stories, he must earn the divine and that always leads to the unexpected. On his twisting journey from victim to hero, he meets a Ferryman, a Gatekeeper, and ultimately his true Spirit Guide.
Roy Dimond and Jeff Leitch deliver an eloquent portrait of a teachers’ life. They write frankly about how to model the behavior on tough topics that baffle both, teachers and students. The two authors reinforce the importance of communication and social responsibility of not only these community – centered professionals, but all people who’ve chosen to make a difference in people’s lives.
Saving Our Pennys is a revealing story about the human soul, and the authors lay out a pathway that both inspire and challenge the reader. The story resonates deeply and has us look inwards, and asks us to provide support for any person, not only ourselves, who is struggling to find their balance.
