Gregory Michie's first bestseller, Holler If You Hear Me, put him on the map as a courageous and passionate voice in urban education. In his new book, Michie turns his attention to young teachers of colour, and once again provides readers with a unique and penetrating look inside school classrooms. Featuring portraits of five young teachers (two African Americans, two Latinas, and one Asian American) who are 'working for change', Michie weaves the teachers' powerful voices with classroom vignettes and his own experiences. Along the way, he examines what motivates and sustains these teachers, as well as what they see as the challenges and possibilities of public education.
Gregory Michie is a public school teacher in Chicago, and senior research associate at the Center for Policy Studies and Social Justice at Concordia University, Chicago. He is the bestselling author of Holler If You Hear Me, Second Edition, and See You When We Get There
