    Best-selling author Rafe Esquith, the only teacher to receive the National Medal of Arts, has garnered the American Teacher Award and numerous other honors. Still teaching fifth graders in a small, leaky classroom in downtown Los Angeles, Esquith fosters a wholesome climate where character, humility, and diligence matter and support is unconditional. For his mostly poor and Hispanic students, Esquith models two maxims: Be nice and work hard, and There are no shortcuts. And his students thrive!

    Thomas Keeler says: "Inspiring even if not what it claims to be"
    "Inspirational Listen"

    If you could sum up Teach Like Your Hair's On Fire in three words, what would they be?

    This book is inspiring and hopeful. While not all teachers will reach Rafe's level of commitment, they do exist and they are reaching many youth.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I liked hearing about what these students went on to do with their adult lives. Rafe doesn't claim to reach all of his students, but he has been instrumental in many of their lives and they, in turn, are spreading his values, giving to their communities, and generally being positive, productive people.


    Any additional comments?

    I particularly liked his advice to young teachers. His program was built over years and was not without issues. It is a very inspiring read, with lots of good ideas, but he never says
