Abstract:

Many teachers enter their profession with a dream of making the world a better place, but they are soon overwhelmed with the realities of working in the educational system and distracted from the dream that inspired them in the first place. In a series of eloquent and moving essays, the author gives renewed hope to teachers who can still imagine a better world and are committed to working toward it. This is a book for people who are dissatisfied with the status quo and discouraged by the pace of change.
