Real Teachers is an album of ten stories for revitalization, and for a return to the roots of education and the art of teaching. Grauer’s beautiful and compelling narratives bring to life lessons of incredible relevance, lessons embraced by all who aspire to be better teachers, locally and globally. In Real Teachers, Grauer trades in institutionalization, fear, and formulaic approaches for individuality, perseverance, and the process of discovery. Real Teachers is a call to action based upon a larger vision of what teachers can do and where they can fi nd enduring inspiration. Through this collection of true short stories, Grauer invites us into the history of his life, his discoveries—his road to growth that made him a real teacher. Sometimes with deep reverence, other times outrageously, Real Teachers shows how, around the world, real teachers are learning to love education again.
