Summary

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
