A Celebration of the Power of Teaching There is a moment for most teachers when the lure of working with kids surpasses all logic: You know, you just know, that you are meant to teach. But in the day-to-day crush of details and bus duty, politics and paperwork, or kids without their homework for the eighth day in a row, life can erode passion and distract you from your sense of purpose. This collection of stories from teachers everywhere will remind you of those magic moments when a light goes on in the eyes of a child, when resistance breaks, when hearts connect—moments that make the challenges of teaching worth every second and remind you of why you are here in the first place. From the Trade Paperback edition.

We are all caught up in our children's lives. We all remember our own schooldays and, as parents, we watch anxiously as our children go through it. As we look at the world of teaching from the outside we wonder not only what is going on but what we can do to help. Jonathan Smith, a born teacher and writer, takes us on his personal journey from his first days as a pupil through to the challenges of his professional and private life on the other side of the desk. He makes us feels what it is like to be a teacher facing the joys and the battles of a class. How do you influence a child? He describes how you catch and stretch their minds. What difference can a teacher make, or how much damage can he do? Should clever pupils teach themselves? What works in the classroom world and what does not? And while influencing the young, how do you develop yourself, how do you teach yourself to keep another life and find that elusive balance? This is a compelling and combative story, warmly anecdotal in approach, yet as sharp in its views of the current debates as it is sensitive in its psychological understanding. From the first page to the last, and without a hint of jargon, this inspiring book rings true.

Jackie Waldman, the author of The Courage to Give and Teens with the Courage to Give, now presents the stories of forty-two incredible teachers and the ways they went beyond the call of duty to make a difference in the lives of their students. In these inspiring pages you'll meet Trish Hill, a teacher from Ft. Worth, Texas, who underwent radiation and chemotherapy without missing a day of school because her first graders gave her energy and courage; and Alison Frost, a drama teacher in Houston who makes casting decisions knowing that the role may be better for the student than the student for the role. Then there's Francis Mustapha, a teacher born in a small village in Africa, who teaches in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and used a student's suicide to create an opportunity for other students to succeed. Through their courageous first-person stories, these men and women prove that teachers are true everyday heroes. "Each of us remembers the teacher who made a difference in our life--that special person who has given us a glimpse of what we may accomplish or who we may become. By honoring teachers, and learning their lessons, we will co-create a safer, kinder world." -Jackie Waldman

Teachers with Class celebrates teachers and the art of good teaching. Almost everyone has had a special teacher at some point-one who saw potential where others did not, one who made ideas come alive, one who taught more than what was in the textbook. In Teachers with Class, 30 famous and not-so-famous people thank their favorite teachers with essays that praise the difference a good teacher makes. James Earl Jones honors the high school English teacher who helped him overcome his stutter and learn to speak comfortably out loud. An architect recalls a teacher's belief in the unlikeliest student. Three-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, Thomas Friedman, remembers the teacher who inspired his career in journalism by imparting lessons that are relevant today. One man tells of the math teacher whose patience and guidance gave him the confidence to succeed as a physician and researcher. These stories will spark memories about the special teachers in your own life. To say "thank you," use the list of grants and awards for teachers featured in the book to nominate a teacher who made a positive impact on your life. A portion of the proceeds from Teachers with Class will go to the National Education Association (NEA) Foundation.

As a young English teacher keen to make a difference in the world, Michelle Kuo took a job at a tough school in the Mississippi Delta, sharing books and poetry with a young African-American teenager named Patrick and his classmates. For the first time, these kids began to engage with ideas and dreams beyond their small town, and to gain an insight into themselves that they had never had before. Two years later, Michelle left to go to law school; but Patrick began to lose his way, ending up jailed for murder. And that’s when Michelle decided that her work was not done, and began to visit Patrick once a week, and soon every day, to read with him again. Reading with Patrick is an inspirational story of friendship, a coming-of-age story for both a young teacher and a student, an expansive, deeply resonant meditation on education, race and justice, and a love letter to literature and its power to transcend social barriers.
