Identity Is Shaped by Experiences and Lessons
An amazing resource to inspire teachers to be their best selves in the classroom—to be that teacher every student deserves. The lessons gleaned from excellent teachers serve as a guide to developing qualities that matter. Embedded in the didactic elements, the author tells a wonderful story of going from an African-American boy in special education, to teaching in AmeriCorps, to working as a math teacher in the Boston Public Schools. Kwame Sarfo-Mensah’s experiences shaped his identity, and gave him the confidence to successfully relate to his students, set high expectations for them, and to thrive in spite of many tough situations. This book is a must-read for all educators.
