Book description
When teaching science in an inner-city high school, Elizabeth Blake tries to find a way to reach her at-risk students. But when crushed by shootings, gangs, drugs, a riot, and abusive administrators, can she overcome the stress and find the ultimate meaning behind her life’s struggles?
Full of drama and hope, No Child Left Behind? The true story of a teacher’s quest is not just for teachers. It’s a book for anyone who wishes to be inspired through tough times.
Roy Pickering, Jr., Author, states, “The tone of her memoir is of hope that change will someday come; satisfaction that she did do something to help as many kids succeed as she was somehow able to reach; and gratitude that in the process of affecting their lives they blessed her own.”
No Child Left Behind? The true story of a teacher’s quest was a finalist in the 2009 Premier Book Awards national book contest. To read an excerpt, visit http://www.easyscienceactivities.blogspot.com
