Overview

In this time of narrowed curricula and high-stakes accountability, Gregory Michie's tales of struggle and triumph are as relevant as ever. Since it was first published in 1999, Holler has become essential reading for new and seasoned teachers alike, and an inspiring read for many others. Weaving back and forth between Michie's awakening as a teacher and the first-person stories of his students, this highly acclaimed book paints an intimate and compassionate portrait of teaching and learning in urban America. While the popular notion of what it's like to teach in city schools is dominated by horror stories and hero tales, Michie and his students reside somewhere in between these extremes-"between the miracles and the metal detectors."

Holler If You Hear Me is not a typical “hero” story that you normally read about in urban schools. This book is a real experience based on real people and their for real story. Gregory Mitchie is a teacher in an urban area who discusses his real interactions with urban students, in various schools.  Greg not only portrays his situation but he also follows up with his student’s years after leaving his classroom. The follow up puts a unique perspective or twist on the general layout of typical teacher stories. This is a great book to read if you are contemplating being a teacher in general. I would give this book 10 stars if I could!
