Education: it’s touched all of us in some way.
Whether you were the student who sought attention with the pranks you pulled or the one who sat quietly in the back of the room hoping you didn’t get called on…….
Or whether you were the teacher who struggled to maintain order in your classroom, tirelessly managing the prankster and the disengaged learner, Memoirs of An Urban Educator: Tales From the Hood is for you.
These vignettes capture the experiences of the urban classroom and provide insights that could transform our public educational system.
A quality education for every student, no matter their race, ethnicity, or learning disability, can be achieved. But first, urban educators must understand how to create a culture and community within the classroom where every student can thrive.
Memoirs of An Urban Educator: Tales From the Hood will invite you into the classrooms of inner-city schools, and enlighten you from both the student’s and teacher’s perspective, so that education can touch you anew.
