“A Personal Journey to the Heart of Teaching” is the first book that I’ve read by author, John Fioravanti. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the man be behind the story and I’m sure you’ll agree when you read more about him.
This is a story about decency, family politics, family, fear, and triumph.Teaching is the canvas but the portrait is so much richer and more colourful. This book will capture and absorb you. Fear of failure is a powerful motivator and as John Fioravanti battles and defeats his demons you will find yourself cheering for him as if he were contesting a sporting event.
Teaching is not a discipline confined to schools, and the lessons in this book about planning, listening, empathizing and sympathizing have applicability to all professions and walks of life − from a police lieutenant training officers to a sales manager teaching sales representatives and everything else in between.
John Fioravanti shaped, elevated, and improved the lives thousands of young people. After you’ve read this short story, you’ll be fulfilled and uplifted.

Everyone who reads this memoir will come away with many positive emotions. For example, I appreciate his honesty when he discusses those “demons” many of us fight most of our lives – the fear of failure for one – being at the heart of many never starting a journey.
His illustrious career in education moved him to the next successful venture – Publishing – and I have no doubt that he, along with his wife, will continue to have great success. If you need inspiration, or a good example of how to make decisions when deciding which course your life should take, I recommend reading this book. You’ll come away with a renewed
