Editorial Reviews

Review

Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Yo Miz!" is an inherentlyfascinating and informative read -- and a substantial and valued contribution to the on-goingnational dialogue about our public education schools and policies. Very highly recommended forboth community and academic library collections, it should be noted for personal reading liststhat "Yo Miz!" is also available in a Kindle edition ($5.99).   Midwestern Book Review - Small Press Bookwatch: midwestbookreview.com/sbw/jul_15.htm


"Yo Miz! should be required reading for all teachers, parents, people who want to be teachers, people who want to be parents. Schooladministrators (in our dreams), legislators (again dreaming), let's addpoliticians too, why not? Pretty much everyone. It is a funny, sad,beautiful book that ultimately will make you mad as hell." Katherine Hall Page, author, Faith Fairchild mysteries.


KIRKUS REVIEW
"A teacher's memoir of a meandering but deeply purposeful career.

The author's voice ispunchy, comedic, and even whimsical--unsurprising for someone who stagesone-woman off-Broadway shows in her spare time. Her book never devolvesinto an unabashed lament. In fact, her recollection is a testament to the factthat, even under the most unpropitious circumstances, learning is possibleunder a talented, committed teacher.

A funny, inspiring remembrance."

From the Author

Breaking news: "Yo Miz!" has just won the Nonfiction Authors Association Bronze Award!

"Edu-tainer" Elizabeth Rose swore she would never follow the advice of her parents,both teachers, and become a teacher, too. But in between creating music and comedy for stage, film and TV, she took a gig teaching songwritingin a NYC public high school. Her students, mostly from the projects,ignited her with their energy and raw creativity. Frustrated by theschool's outdated technology and lack of a music program, she raisedhundreds of thousands of dollars in tech grants enabling her kids tocreate DVD yearbooks and record original songs. When her job was cut,she was given the choice of substituting in a different school eachweek-or resigning. She almost resigned. Then she realized that thisassignment would give her access to a unique story. So she stayed. Andwrote it. She hopes her parents are having an unearthly chuckle.

Rose has been featured on PBS's "To The Contrary." She is on the Board ofthe Society of Composers and Lyricists. She is the founder of theSullivan County (NY) Songwriters Circle, has hosted and produced showsfor WJFF, Radio Catskill, an NPR affiliate and has and hosted "Mosaic," a weekly arts program on midwestern educational TV. Her one woman musical comedy, "Relative Pitch" was produced Off Broadway by the Cherry LaneTheatre's Mentor Project. "Leave Me Alone" her music video has beenhonored by the NY Caregivers Org and "Back Seat Driver," shot in CountyKerry, Ireland, was given its premier at Tech Amergin, the Irish ArtsCenter in Waterville. "Sleep Naked," her cd of original tunes hasreceived honors and international airplay. A hot guitarist, she's played festivals and toured internationally with the Broadway cast ofBeatlemania on keyboards. She has been a guest lecturer at YaleUniversity (Scott Freiman's Beatles composing/recording seminar) andparticipated in the Yale Writers Conference with TV writer/producersStephen Tolkin and Richard Kramer. Her husband, Don Castellow, hascreated PennywhistleBand.com, bringing affordable instrumental music toelementary schools everywhere.
