Bearing Witness: Poetry by Teachers about Teaching.
Hatcher, Margaret, Ed.
The purpose of this poetry anthology is to create a positive inspirational yet realistic picture of teachers and the very challenging and complex contexts within which they "weave their magic in students' lives" and make contributions to the world. The anthology aims to show how teachers think and feel about teaching, learning, and their students. It seeks to offer a glimpse of teachers' inner lives, how they learn and grow as persons, and something of the context in which they must teach and in which they serve their profession, communities, and world. The anthology consists of 120 carefully selected poems by 70 poet-teachers--topics run the gamut from teenage suicide to the joy of lighting a student's inner fire, and from child abuse to celebrating the child who stands up for others.
