Theme: TEACHERS MAKING A DIFFERENCE

This issue of California English invites you to share with colleagues how you or someone you know has made a difference as a teacher. You might describe a particularly successful lesson or an interaction with a particular student. Your story could focus on a conversation with a new teacher or with an administrator. Is there a book that made a difference in your students’ attitudes towards reading? Was there an assignment that sparked tremendous excitement in your young writers?
