In Stories of the Courage to Teach, Sam Intrator offers a collection of narratives, told by teachers in their own words, that honor the hearts of all teachers who struggle to reconnect with the source of their vocation. In the face of day-to-day obstacles that often times get in the way of good teaching, these teachers have found ways to serve their students, cultivate their own passion for teaching, work towards a common purpose with colleagues, and as Parker Palmer writes, "bring more light and life into the world." Sam M. Intrator (Northampton, MA) is Professor of Education and Child Study at Smith College and coauthor of Teaching with Fire: Poetry That Sustains the Courage to Teach (0-7879-6970-2).
