In Achieving Success in Inner-City Schools: A Guide For New and Seasoned Teachers, Dr. Christina Edwards, educator and consultant, uses a combination of her own experiences, the testimonies of educators alike, and research-based strategies to demonstrate how teachers can sharpen and maintain their passion for teaching while working in urban classrooms. This user-friendly guide offers insight to beginning teachers as they transition into their role as class leader; it reignites hope for seasoned teachers who may be asking themselves, “Why am I doing this?”, and it provides a boost for teachers who want to avoid burnout.
This book offers next-day-use strategies that can be implemented no matter the grade level, subject, school environment, or circumstance. Dr. Edwards uses real-life situations to clearly demonstrate how teachers can sharpen academic engagement and achievement, maintain classroom management, build relationships, and encourage parental engagement.
She explains what teachers, specifically in culturally diverse schools can do differently to ensure every child, despite their zip code, background, or academic abilities is reaching their full potential.

I love reading new books! This one is a breath of fresh air. I am so happy to have a real deal reference guide for teachers. It covers whether or not you are a new teacher or a teacher who's been teaching for years. The great thing about this book is that it places emphasis on diversity and how to teach in inner city and even other geographical areas. Oh! I'm going to work on my relationship with my administrators and am happy to read up on tips on how to go about with this! This is a must have for any teacher.
