Publisher Description

Codell's portrait of an inner-city elementary school is funny, poignant, and inspiring.

Esmé Raji Codell has come to teach, and she's not going to let incompetent administrators, abusive parents, gang members, or her own insecurities get in the way. As she puts it, she has “Thirty-one children. Thirty-one chances. Thirty-one futures, our futures. Everything they become, I also become.” Codell's portrait of an inner-city elementary school is funny, poignant, and inspiring. Her struggle to maintain individuality in the face of bureaucracy and her defiant stand against mediocrity will reverberate in companies as well as classrooms everywhere.
