When teaching 'appears' to fail. The authenticity of being human, paradoxical remembrances, and realms of wellness are some of the themes explored in this cutting-edge, down-to-earth repertoire of essays. Teachers share vivid memories that reflect happenings that began in good faith but, from a human perspective, failed to meet expectations. Read, for example, the chapter 'Heads or Tails?', a lesson that celebrates the traditions of teaching from a generational vantage point. This jewel of a story emphasizes the risks that all good teachers must take in order to make a difference. Or, read of the many paradoxes that are found in teaching. ""An Encounter with a Bully: An Unlikely Transformation"" looks through the eyes of an effective counselor as he influences a bully to reach out and help a fellow student in need. Take a journey with these seasoned educators as they share their stories of humility, failure, and fear - indeed, remembrances that would soon teach them well - as they travel on through a maze of educational lessons.

Arrested in 1960 for being philosophically and religiously opposed to communism, Armando Valladares was interned at Cuba’s infamous Isla de Pinos Prison (from whose barred windows he watched the failure of the Bay of Pigs invasion). His life in Castro’s gulag was a hell of violence and disease, putrid food and squalid living conditions, forced labor and solitary confinement, and hazardous escape attempts. Valladares survived by prayer and poetry. His writing, smuggled out to Europe and the U.S., made him one of the world’s most celebrated prisoners of conscience. As a result of pressure from international human rights organizations, the Castro regime finally released him in 1982. When Against All Hope first appeared, it was immediately compared to Darkness at Noon and other classic prison narratives about the resilience of the human spirit in the face of totalitarianism. Now, with a new prologue by the author, which tells of his life since prison and brings the story of Cuban dissidence up to the case of Elian Gonzalez, this story of strength and survival is more relevant than ever.
