Abstract

Using a risk/resiliency paradigm, this book presents very personal narratives of authors who, in the face of profound challenges, have gone on to become teachers. These authors/teachers are thereby well placed to make a difference in the lives of all those who come under their direct influence, especially those that are most at-risk and/or marginalized. Inclusive of a review of selected seminal research literature, and a full description of the evolution of the project, the essence of this book lives, overwhelmingly, in the telling of personal stories.
