Publisher's Description

WISE STORIES TO HONOR AND ENCOURAGE THE HEARTS OF TEACHERS

"A heartwarming collection of essays about the doubts, passions, insecurities, and life-changing moments of teachers."
-American School Board Journal

"Our history books are filled with examples of the efforts of committed education employees who helped to make this country what it is today. Stories of the Courage to Teach challenges today's teachers to see themselves not only as school employees, dedicated to serving children, but as leaders in their schools and communities."
-Bob Chase, president, National Education Association

"It's the worst-kept secret in education: the passionate and talented teacher makes more of a difference than any school policy. Yet for all the ink spilled over school reform, little gets written about what makes a great teacher tick. Stories of the Courage to Teach . . . [by Sam Intrator] bucks this trend by looking into the hearts of twenty-five effective teachers, knitting together their first-person narratives with his own ideas about great teaching."
-New York Times

"The teachers featured in this anthology have all, at various junctures, been on the verge of exhaustion, and the book is, in many ways, a sustained meditation on how they've sought to regain their emotional and spiritual strength."
-Teacher Magazine

"Stories of the Courage to Teach . . . honors teachers who struggle to rekindle their passion for teaching."
-Christian Science Monitor
