“How can we best prepare teachers to meet the challenges of teaching in today’s urban, suburban and rural schools?”

For courses in Urban Education, Introduction to Teaching, Student Teaching, and General Methods Teaching in the Real World: Strategies to Survive and Thrive is here to help. Readers will not want to put down this brief collection of reflective journal entries sent via e-mail by Miss B a white, female, graduate student doing her student teaching in an urban high school to her college supervisor Professor Z. Miss B’s journal entries  illustrate her transformation from a passionate but struggling student teacher who is sometimes stymied by the challenges posed by her environment and her students to a teacher who has found her voice and the confidence to achieve her dream of improving the lives of her students.
