Exclusive sample chapter. Sitting there amid the paraphernalia accumulated for the start of another school year, I stared out the window at the smokestack, dull and gray in the summer sunshine.

Exclusive sample chapter. I was coming to the nettling conclusion that I wasn’t a very well directed sort of person. I didn’t have a career so much as a series of collisions with interesting opportunities.

Just Another Kid is not just another book

Just Another Kid is not just another book. This remarkable teacher's memoir reminds us that love takes many forms. Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle-three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatized by the horrors of war; eleven-year-old Dirkie, who only knew of life inside an institution; excitable Mariana, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and. unable to speak.

I had to go into the bedroom and rummage through the drawers and the closet to get my clothes for school because I hadn’t been thinking clearly enough the night before to get them out then. comfortably across the bed, the tension finally gone from her face, Ladbrooke never stirred. When I returned at 4:30, it was obvious Ladbrooke had only been up a short time. Her eyes were puffy from so much sleep. Her hair was uncombed. Still dressed only in her underwear and my Minnie Mouse T-shirt, she was sitting at the kitchen table with orange juice and an English muffin.

com User, September 13, 2017 Verified Purchase. I have read several of Torey Hayden's books and loved all of them. You can envision yourself in the classroom and become part of the childrens' lives. But this one focused mainly on one of the parents.

A dramatic and remarkable narrative of an extraordinary teacher's determination, from the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers 'The Tiger's Child' and 'One Child'. Torey Hayden faced six emotionally troubled kids no other teacher could handle -- three recent arrivals from battle-torn Northern Ireland, badly traumatised by the horrors of war; an eleven-year-old boy, who only knew life inside an institution; an excitable girl, aggressive and sexually precocious at the age of eight; and seven-year-old Leslie, perhaps the most hopeless of all, unresponsive and unable to speak. But Torey's most daunting challenge turns out to be Leslie's mother, a stunning young doctor who soon discovers that she needs Torey's love and help just as much as the children. 'Just Another Kid' is a beautiful illustration of nurturing concern, not only for a few emotionally disturbed children, but for one woman facing a personal battle.

Torey Hayden recounts the true story of her teaching experience and interaction with one parent in particular. I could not put this book down. It is so interesting on so many levels. The friend I recommended it to said the same thing, she couldn't put it down. Hayden has such a respectful and honest way of discussing the children's various challenges. She describes the day to day with such interesting, funny, and compassionate detail. What is fascinating is how she can come up with just the right way to handle a new situation on the fly. Although learning about the kids was engrossing in and of itself, the real story comes from this slowly developed, constantly evolving relationship Hayden finds herself in with a parent of one of the students. Dr. Taylor is one of the most interesting characters about which I've read, which is probably the result of her being a real person and Hayden describing the reality of dealing with all sides, positive and negative, of a woman who has genius intelligence, lacks all social skills, is beautiful, an alcoholic, and at once narcissistic, sweet and vulnerable, as well as willing to change. The stories of the children keep the book moving; you love them, hope for them, are heartbroken for them, frustrated with them.. and all the while desperate to know what move Dr. Taylor is going to make next and how Hayden will handle it all.

I have read everything written by Torey Hayden. I worked with children during the same time period and credit her with helping me develop my practical common sense approach and to always LISTEN. Her stories are not just for teachers but for all caring humans who enjoy good writing. Some of her techniques would never work in today's politically correct world, which is too bad....she was very firm but very clued in to what would work with each child. I miss her writing and wonder why she doesn't publish much now. Highly recommended!

My favorite author. I buy Torey's books to give as gifts to anyone who teaches, taught, is a social worker, psychologist, cares about kids, has a special education child, is a parent, etc. This story is not only a story about a special education teacher and an unusual teaching assistant, but is also a glimpse into the history of the reality of special education in public schools in America and perhaps a cautionary tale about how far we have come, and how quickly we can revert to such a time unless people care a whole lot to do something about it....

I found "Just Another Kid" absorbing and engaging; that's why I ordered my second copy from Amazon.com. (I got my first copy from a local bookstore.) I love how Torey was willing to help and guide Ladbrooke once Dr. Taylor reached out and requested Ms. Hayden's help. Particularly touching was the teacher's response when her assistant told the story of the brother Bobby's suicide at his apartment. There were a couple things I found disturbing, however. They involve Ms. Hayden's interaction with Shemona. One such scene comes right after Leslie alerts Torey to the sound of a kid crying and the teacher goes to investigate an altercation between eleven-year-old Dirkie and the little girl, Shemona. The teacher admitted right there in her own account that Dirkie started the ruckus by pestering the little girl about her hair. Instead of going after the culprit, however, Ms. Hayden punished Shemona and tried to bully the kid into talking just for the sake of talking. The second scenario involving Shemona and the Hayden woman had to do with an ingrown toenail the child had. When the adult finally got the little kid down to the faculty lounge so that the painful problem could be fixed, she then explained that she would go and get some cream and things to treat it. That part is perfectly okay. The toenail needed to be fixed. What was NOT okay was the woman's response when the little girl queried about possible pain from the actual treatment itself. Torey actually had the nerve to smirk and reply with another question: "It hurts already, doesn't it?" Ordinarily, I would call the teacher very compassionate, and I'm sure she was, but these two scenes are two of the very few instances when she totally blew it. By the way, that's one of the parts of this book that I really like. Torey actually admitted to Ladbrooke that she, Torey Hayden, quite often screwed up things in her classroom. Now, that takes honest humility. Despite the teacher's quirks, I would recommend "Just Another Kid" to any and all readers out there who haven't read it yet.

I love your determination and ability to figure out what works

Torey Hayden has been one of the most inspirational writers I’ve ever read. Long before I ever taught my first group of children, I read One Chil and it confirmed my idea that if I impacted only one child in my class it was enough! I’m thrilled to finally have this format to carry with me wherever I go!
