The author draws on her own experience as a K-12 educator in a diverse school to explore how teachers think about successful students and their own success as teachers. This includes information about how the author became known as “tough” teacher with high expectations—balanced with caring and knowledge of what students needs to do to be successful in life after school. It explores deeper systemic problems that affect the academic achievement of marginalized and diverse students. The author includes examples of teaching strategies and assignments that challenge students, how to create scaffolding, and how to honor the prior knowledge of students. Messages received from former students are interspersed throughout the chapter.
