Goodbye, Mr. Chips, by James Hilton… What a gem, this little book! It perfectly describes the life and heart of a teacher, the joy of learning and of teaching, the love that goes into guiding/teaching the younger generations, and the simple but profound realization that the job of teacher is not a job but a calling.

I haven’t heard of this one before. Glad you liked it!
Thanks, Kelly. I loved this little novella! Being a retired school teacher, it really hit home with me. It’s an old book, and there have been a number of movie versions made of it. The version I remember starred Peter O’Toole, I think.
