Overview

This important memoir of professional development in action follows bestselling author Selma Wassermann from her dismal beginnings, struggling for control over her students, to enjoying the kind of teaching in which teacher and students are truly partners in the process. This is the story of learning to respect students, to allow them choices, to engage them in their own self-discoveries, to relinquish control, to make informed diagnoses of individual learning needs and create teaching strategies to address them, and, ultimately, to stand up for what one believes is right and good in the education of children.
