Educating Esme: Diary of a Teacher's First Year by Esme Raji Codell
This is a wonderful, wonderful book.
Easily read in just a couple of hours, this is a diary account of Esme's first year teaching in an inner city public school. She talks about her classroom ideas and initiatives, her students, her idiotic administration, and her own personal struggles with being a teacher.
This book will remind you of that *one* teacher that changed your life, and will help you remember why.
A great, inspiring read!
