Esme Raji Codell
Adult Nonfiction LB2844.1.N4 C63 1999
Summary: A must-read for parents, new teachers, and classroom veterans, Educating EsmÃ© is the exuberant diary of EsmÃ© Raji Codell's first year teaching in a Chicago public school. Fresh-mouthed and free-spirited, the irrepressible Madame EsmÃ©--as she prefers to be called--does the cha-cha during multiplication tables, roller-skates down the hallways, and puts on rousing performances with at-risk students in the library. Her diary opens a window into a real-life classroom from a teacher's perspective. While battling bureaucrats, gang members, abusive parents, and her own insecurities, this gifted young woman reveals what it takes to be an exceptional teacher.nbsp; Heroine to thousands of parents and educators, EsmÃ© now shares more of her ingenious and yet down-to-earth approaches to the classroom in a supplementary guide to help new teachers hit the ground running. As relevant and iconoclastic as when it was first published, Educating EsmÃ© is a classic, as is Madame EsmÃ© herself.
