Elizabeth Green

We’ve all had great teachers who opened new worlds, maybe even changed our lives. What made them so great?
Everyone agrees that a great teacher can have an enormous impact. Yet we still don't know what, precisely, makes a teacher great. Is it a matter of natural-born charisma? Or does exceptional teaching require something more?

“We romanticize teachers, and we vilify them, but we don't do much to help. This beautifully written, defiantly hopeful book points the way to a better future for American teachers and the children they teach.” —Paul Tough

$26.95 $18.87

Sophia Amoruso A #GIRLBOSS takes her life seriously without taking herself too seriously. She takes chances and takes responsibility on her own terms. . She knows when to throw punches and when to roll with them. When to button up and when to let her freak flag fly. "Amoruso's voice is accessible and charmingly self-deprecating without losing the effortless cool that characterizes her clothes, and her book is a D.I.Y. success manual written for women who were more prone to be voted 'Most Unique' than 'Most Likely to Succeed.'" —The New York Times Book Review, Erin Gloria Ryan
