About the Author:

Meenoo Rami, author of Thrive, is a national board certified teacher who taught students English in Philadelphia for ten years, at the Science Leadership Academy and in other public schools in the city. She has shared her classroom practice at various national and regional conferences including NCTE, ISTE, ASCD, ILA, EduCon, and the National Writing Project's Urban Sites Conference. The founder of #engchat, an international Twitter chat for English teachers, Meenoo has also been a teacher-consultant for the Philadelphia Writing Project and an educational consultant with The Educator Collaborative. Meenoo is currently on a two-year assignment as a teaching fellow with the Gates Foundation, where she is working to help teachers refine their practice through collaboration.

Review:

In Thrive, Meenoo Rami does an amazing job of turning the challenges of teaching in this new, networked world of learning into opportunities for teachers and students alike. She shares an amazing array of practical ideas that will help both veteran and brand new teachers find support and inspiration for working the technology rich environments that the modern learner demands. Filled with the stories of real teachers in real classrooms to support her ideas, Meenoo's book is simply a must read for any educator wanting to better understand the potentials for student and personal learning in this most complex and exciting time.
--Will Richardson, author of Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Education Are Everywhere

Whether you are entering your first year teaching or your fortieth, Thrive feels as if it were written just for you. At a time in our profession where many of us are feeling stretched thin, Meenoo Rami offers wisdom and practical strategies to reignite our passions and rediscover why we chose to teach. From rethinking mentor-mentee structures to building networks of inspiration to empowering yourself and your students to design your own instruction, this book is an invitation to innovate your personal practice and our profession.
--Christopher Lehman, author of Falling in Love with Close Reading

This is the book I wish I had been able to read when I began teaching. On every page Meenoo offers practical suggestions, accompanied by wit and wisdom, that can help us solve the problems we all encounter no matter how long we have been teaching. Thanks to her vision and her voice, I see great hope in the future for our profession.
--From the Foreword by Jim Burke

Regardless of one's profession, it is important to cultivate a practice of evaluating and re-evaluating progress and personal growth. Meenoo Rami adeptly shares critical ways for educators to check in with themselves and track their progress, and to inject passion into their work. Her ideas are relevant for both rookie teachers and classroom veterans alike!
--Angela Maiers

Teaching is a profession that eats its young. Meenoo Rami's Thrive offers guidelines for surviving the challenges of the classroom as well as the faculty room. This book is certain to save new teachers buckets of tears.
--Carol Jago, author, English teacher, and past president of the National Council of Teachers of English

Meenoo Rami lives joy. She sees teachers and students as co-creators of vibrant, real, and exacting work. Thrive includes a mosaic of dynamic teacher voices from many grade levels and content areas. Reading their stories deepened my thinking about the immense untapped potential of our profession. Thrive is for new teachers seeking a wise mentor. It is for any teacher who imagines a bold approach to the challenge of reaching all children today. Meenoo Rami s vision of teaching and learning can sustain us all.
--Penny Kittle, author of Book Love

To be successful, teachers must constantly be learning, reflecting and growing to meet the ever-changing needs of the students in front of them. To many of us, this can seem like an overwhelming task. Who do I learn from? How can I keep growing as an educator? How do I keep the work I do relevant and fresh to myself and my students? Fortunately, Meenoo Rami has written this book which provides a road map for all of us to, yes, thrive, in our schools over the course of a career. And as Meenoo s principal, I can say that she lives the words of this book in her classroom every day. .
--Chris Lehmann, Founding Principal, Science Leadership Academy

Meenoo Rami has written the right book at the right time. In an era of corporate education reform, Thrive reminds us of how we, as teachers, need human interaction, intellectual fulfillment, and empathy --Troy Hicks, author of Crafting Digital Writing

Meenoo Rami has written the right book at the right time. In an era of corporate education reform, Thrive reminds us of how we, as teachers, need human interaction, intellectual fulfillment, and empathy just as much as our students. Rami encourages us to move beyond the mechanical acts of scripted schooling and mandatory professional development, offering us numerous ways to pursue our own passions and bring them to the classroom. She notes that "the rewards of this work will be paid with your students' success and engagement." Filled with practical suggestions, stories from fellow educators, and smart questions, Thrive will reward you as a reader, too. --Troy Hicks, author of Crafting Digital Writing
