Publisher's Summary

The inspiring true story of how a group of inner-city school kids taught their teacher how to overcome personal adversity and achieve success and happiness.  

Crash Course chronicles the life lessons that Kim Bearden has learned during an award-winning career in education. From her challenges as a first-year teacher to her triumphs as the co-founder of the highly acclaimed Ron Clark Academy, Kim shares how children can teach each of us the importance of building relationships, abandoning fear, discovering resilience, embracing one's unique gifts, and living with passion.  

Full of honesty, humor, heartbreak, and humanity, Kim's experiences show how children can help any one of us find joy and meaning in both our personal and professional lives. Crash Course is "humorous and sensitive" (Kirkus Reviews), an important resource for every home library.

I love Kim's stories!

I find myself in tears several times in this story as Kim took me on a journey through her eyes and heart as she shared some very inspirational events in her life and career. Note to the author: Kim, you have truly touched my heart and I take every minute of this reading into my own 5th grade classroom. Your love of the children and your passion for teaching them not just ELA, but life lessons has made a huge positive impact on the way I look at my own life and career. I know that when I find myself in doubt if I made the right choice leaving a job in the tech field to teach for less than half of the salary, that following God's plan for me was and will always be the right chouce. Thank you for guiding me to clarity through your words.
