LISTEN TO ME: A Child’s Plea is the book I wish had been available when I began teaching, the one I desperately needed, the one which could have possibly saved me, and my students, my first year in the classroom. It speaks to important educational issues which were not talked about in college courses, seminars, or teachers’ meetings. It illuminates what kids want you to know, what they deserve.
What began as a personal (for my eyes only) document of my experiences teaching and advocating for children in the first, second, and third grades, evolved into this current form after I was urged to share these ideas, projects, and knowledge with others. “There should be,” I was told, “a copy of LISTEN TO ME: A Child’s Plea in every classroom. The ‘Children’s Bill of Rights’ (A Child’s Plea) could be hung on the wall of every educator, parent, and anyone who cares about children.”
