Summary
The author, a recognized master teacher, offers this delightful collection in celebration of our heroes in the classroom. In this little volume of short essays, students around the country share a few words about their mentors and what it means to be a good teacher. From the Freedom Schools in Mississippi to the first integrated schools, from students with physical disabilities to those with language barriers, from the elementary school classroom to the college seminar, writers young and old share how different and difficult their lives would be today without the aid of a special teacher
