Reading about his experiences in the classroom reassured my belief that many students, if not all, require much more than a teacher, especially when so many of our children are lacking when it comes to stable family relationships.
The stories in this book struck a personal chord. The chapter titled "A Fresh Dreamer" was particularly poignant. I came to the US when I was 14. This experience has shaped my adult life and continues to shape my future and the future of my family. I now work with recent immigrant children who find themselves in the same situation I was in nineteen years ago. The American Dream is alive and well in them. I help them adjust to their new country and they help me remember what I once was. Teaching is a two-way street and Chris captures the essence of what it means to be a true teacher to our children.
I have bought this book as a gift for several friends and some of my kids teachers, and they love the book as well.
I recommend this book 100%. You will be pleased.
