“RECESS IS OVER! by Dr. Sherry L. Meinberg is a must-read for all teachers, whether they are in the student teaching phase or serving as a master teacher. It is a great reminder book for the veteran teacher. It also reaffirms the enormous responsibility that falls to the teaching profession and should be taken very seriously by those beginning in the field to teachers that have been serving as long as this reviewer (thirty-five years).” - Joyce M. Gilmour "Copy Editor and Book Reviewer"
“As a teacher educator, this little book has been a life saver for my student teachers. Everything in it is common sense. Because student teachers lack experience, they don't know everything they need to know to get along in schools. The author gives short pieces of good advice about a variety of topics. The book is now required reading for those I supervise.” - Kathleen M. Pittman "Professor"
