Overview

In one of the poorest parishes in rural Louisiana, Mabel Lawrence Thomas taught biology in the small community of Winnsboro for over 30 years advocating diversity and individual success over the hardships of poverty and illiteracy. She challenged her students to take responsibility for themselves, work hard, and surprise everyone with what they could do. Today her students are teachers, nurses, doctors, business owners, attorneys, ministers, and a mayor. In Through a Teacher's Eyes, Mrs. Thomas shares her philosophy of instilling faith and hope in all of her students. Frederick Jones, along with his former classmates, agrees that her lessons were . . . more than a classroom.
