About the Author

Breaking news: "Yo Miz!" has just won the Nonfiction Authors Association Bronze Award! 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 songwriting in a NYC public high school. Her students, mostly from the projects, ignited her with their energy and raw creativity. Frustrated by the school's outdated technology and lack of a music program, she raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in tech grants enabling her kids to create DVD yearbooks and record original songs. When her job was cut, she was given the choice of substituting in a different school each week--or resigning. She almost resigned. Then she realized that this assignment would give her access to a unique story. So she stayed. And wrote it. She hopes her late parents are having an unearthly chuckle.

This was a very interesting book which shows the good and the bad of the New York City school system. Delightfully written. You want to hug the kids and strangle some of the administrators. A fun read.
