Go behind the scenes and be mentored by the best in the business to find out what it’s really like, and what it really takes, to become a teacher.

Acclaimed education writer Melinda D. Anderson shadows Mrs. Hall to reveal how this rewarding profession changes lives. Learn about Hall’s path to prominence, from the challenging realities of her rookie year to her place of excellence in the classroom.
