Why We Teach by Sonia Nieto

Book Description

Why teach? Listen to the voices of both veteran and new teachers as they share their most heartfelt and thoughtful replies to this simple but important question. Sonia Nieto, a distinguished teacher in her own right, has gathered the insights and inspirations of K-12 classroom teachers as they examine how and why they find purpose and value in the work they do. The teachers in this book, like so many across the country, do the kind of work that may not grab headlines but is far more important than even the highest test score: These teachers listen closely to their students. They share in their students' struggles and successes. They create a classroom climate that encourages growth, direction, and purpose. They help students develop into thoughtful, engaged citizens. The teachers in this book show us the kinds of learning that really matter, and the kinds of lessons that students can take with them for their entire lives. This inspirational book focuses on the quintessential values of teaching, challenges current notions that focus on only accountability, testing, and standardization, and provide a compelling message of hope for public education.

Books By Author Sonia Nieto

Language, Culture, and Teaching by Sonia Nieto Language, Culture, and Teaching, Hardback (October 2009)

Offering information, insights, and motivation to teach students of diverse cultural, racial, and linguistic backgrounds, this text illustrates: real-life dilemmas about diversity that teachers face in their own classrooms; ideas about how language, culture, and teaching are linked; and, ways to engage with these ideas.

Dear Paulo by Sonia Nieto Dear Paulo, Paperback (July 2008)

From newly minted teachers terrified of facing their first day in the classroom to seasoned academics whose work has largely been inspired by Freire, this collection, accompanied by photographs of the author with some of the letter writers, is both a memorial and a call to action to work for social justice, praxis, and democracy.
