Practice Transcending Theory
Edited By Mary Poplin and Claudia Bermudez
Highly Effective Teachers of Vulnerable Students contains the quintessential details of highly effective teachers working with students who live in poverty inside our public schools and community colleges. This book features the words and actions of the teachers that can inspire and direct any current or future teacher who wants to be great and be a part of inspiring young people to fulfill their potential. This is the grist we need to spark a reinvigorated critical national conversation about what it takes to really have highly effective teachers in low-income public schools and whether we have the moral courage to work as hard as they do to make educational equity a reality in our nation.
We would like to acknowledge the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation for their generous support of this research.
We would also like to acknowledge all of the districts’ administrative staff and principals who helped us locate their most effective teachers and made it possible for us to observe them.
Last, but surely not least, we are ever so grateful to the highly effective teachers who every day give their best to help their students grow in knowledge, integrity and confidence. Their unrelenting dedication is a tribute to teaching as a high and noble calling.
