[nice clean copy, tiny bump to one top corner, a trace of shelfwear at base of spine, NO remainder or other marks; jacket has a tiny tear at top corner (will be invisible inside new jacket protector, supplied), tiny scrape mark near lower right-hand corner of front panel]. INSCRIBED generically ("From one teacher to another -- Happy reading!") and signed ("Madame Esmé") on the title page. The "uncensored diary" of a teacher's first year in the Chicago public school system -- documenting 5th grade teacher in a Chicago public school -- documenting above all her determination to not "let incompetent administrators, abusive parents, gang members, weary teachers, angry children, dim-witted principals, or her own insecurities get in the way of delivery the education her fifth-grade students deserve." The generic (non-personalized) inscription makes this appropriate as a gift. Signed by Author
