From the Back Cover:

“It is essential for classroom teachers to be reflective. It is critical that they be aware of their own biases and prejudices. Larrivee does an excellent job of gently guiding the teacher through a look at his/her past. The first chapter creates a comfort zone with which the teacher continues to look at his/her past and consequently at his/her treatment of children.”
Dr. Patricia A. Pintar, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College
