Wisdom to reenergize teachers of all ages and at all stages, from theNew York Timesbestselling author ofTeach Like Your Hair’s on FireIf Rafe Esquith’sTeach Like Your Hair’s on Firewas food for a teacher’s mind,Real Talk for Real Teachersfeeds the teacher’s soul. In this inspiring book, the genius behind the triumphs in Room 56 and on the stage with the Hobart Shakespeareans returns with words of wisdom and advice for those who struggle day to day in the world’s hardest profession.After thirty-plus years in the job, Esquith still puts in the countless classroom hours with which any dedicated teacher will be instantly familiar. He recognizes that new teachers and veteran educators need different kinds of nourishment, whether it’s encouragement to see through a teacher’s difficult early years, advice on midcareer classroom building, or novel ideas for how longtime educators can put their expertise to work.Mixing his trademark offbeat humor and no-nonsense maxims with instructive stories and useful in-class advice, Esquith proves the perfect companion for teachers who need a quick pick-me-up, a long heart-to-heart, or just a momentary reminder that they’re not alone.Real Talk for Real Teachersis from-the-hip advice to help teachers of every stripe cope with the overwhelming challenges of the classroom and beyond.

Rafe Esquith has taught at Hobart Elementary School for more than twenty-eight years. He is the only teacher in history to receive the National Medal of Arts. He has also been made a Member of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth. His many other honors include the American Teacher Award, The Kennedy Center's Sondheim Inspirational Teacher Award, People magazine's Heroes Among Us Award, Parents magazine's As You Grow Award, Oprah Winfrey's Use Your Life Award, and the Compassion in Action Award from the Dalai Lama. In 2012 Esquith presented at the prestigious TED conference. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Barbara Tong. Read CBS's news story on Rafe Esquith.
