AUTHOR

Esme Raji Codell

SUMMARY

A pop culture phenomenon (Publishers Weekly) "Screaming funny" (Booklist) "Funny, poignant, and even sad. You'll find yourself laughing at places, ready to cry at others." (The Arizona Republic) "It should be read by anyone who's interested in the future of public education." (Boston Phoenix Literary Section) "Esme is a teacher I'd hire tomorrow. There is nothing the profession needs more than such creative intelligent, combative, and loving teachers." ( Herbert Kohl, author of 36 Children) Esme Raji Codell has come to teach. Fresh-mouthed and miniskirted, this irrepressible spirit does the cha-cha during multiplication lessons, roller-skates down the hallways, and puts on rousing performances with at-risk students in the library. In Educating Esme, the diary of her first year teaching in a Chicago public school, she opens a window into a real-life classroom. While battling bureaucrats, gang members, abusive parents, and her own insecurities, this gifted teacher changes her student's lives forever. Winner, Memoir of the Year, ForeWord magazine Winner, Alex Award for Outstanding Book for Young Adult ReadersEsme Raji Codell is the author of 'Educating Esm: Diary of a Teacher's First Year', published 2001 under ISBN 9781565122796 and ISBN 1565122798.
