NPR has an article on an amazing inner city teacher at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4608476
.  Rafe Esquith is an inspiration to me, a devoted teacher who goes beyond what’s in the state standards, what’s in the union contract, what’s in the district memos to teach
his students.  He’s done so for 24 years.  I’ve only taught for 5 years.  I certainly hope that in 19 more years I would come close to doing half what this amazing teacher has done.
