Dear Paulo: Letters from Those Who Dare Teach is a heartfelt response from teachers, academics, and community workers to the work of the internationally renowned educator and author Paulo Freire. From newly minted teachers terrified of facing their first day in the classroom to seasoned academics whose work has largely been inspired by Freire, this collection, accompanied by photographs of Freire with some of the letter writers, is both a loving memorial and a call to action to work for social justice, praxis, and democracy, ideals envisioned and brilliantly articulated by Paulo.

About the Author:

Sonia Nieto is Professor Emerita of Language, Literacy, and Culture at the University of Massachusetts–Amherst. She is the author of, among other books, Affirming Diversity: The Sociopolitical Context of Multicultural Education, 5th ed. (2008, with Patty Bode), What Keeps Teachers Going? (2003), and Why We Teach (2005).

Review:

“Sonia Nieto is daring for having dreamt and realized a project that ‘not even she nor anyone else could have imagined,’ without the complicity of dozens of people... This [is a] book of rare beauty and extreme importance and a must read for all those for whom ‘reading the world’ will make them want to transform it. We should all congratulate ourselves: Paulo is smiling with us.”
―Ana Maria Araújo Freire

“In Dear Paulo: Letters from Those Who Dare Teach, dozens of teachers write deeply personal letters addressed to famed Brazilian educator Paulo Friere. The result is a book that has much of the fire and magic of Friere’s own writing.”
―Teaching Tolerance(Spring 2010)

“I am mindful of the awesome responsibility that I inherit as an educator. I take comfort knowing that I am never alone, in that we who teach comprise collectively multiple links in a chain of empowerment that stretches backward in time, but more important, forward into the unseen future. If I am to serve humbly as one small link along countless others, your ideas, Dear Paulo, are the iron through which that chain is wrought, and made ever more strong and tenacious...”
―excerpt from the letter by John Raible, a teacher educator
