The Path to Becoming an Exceptional Teacher " The most important knowledge base of teacher education is the teacher. The next most important knowledge is that there are options other than the ones we may have been raised with. We have choices, and we have the obligation to use those choices responsibly for children." – Elizabeth Aaronsohn " This book, full of wonderful strategies and inspirations on becoming the kind of teacher we all strive to be, gives me hope for the future of teaching. Aarohnson writes with honesty and authority on how to become a truly effective educator." – William A. Howe, president, National Association for Multicultural Education " At a time when teacher education has come under sharp attack, this book offers an exciting and challenging blueprint for preparing the teachers we need for the schools our children deserve. Anyone willing to think outside the box and challenge their own assumptions about teachereducation should read this book– parents, future and current teachers, school administrators and other educational change agents." – Mara Sapon-Shevin, Professor of Inclusive Education, Teaching and Leadership Programs, Syracuse University " Using inspiring stories from her own classroom, heartfelt student responses, and current educational research, Liz Aaronsohn challenges readers to prepare a new generation of teachers who dare to know themselves, love their students, question the system, and rock boat. If we heed her advice, we will all– teachers, students, and teacher educators– be better as a result." – Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
