Each chapter of See You When We Get There profiles the work and practice of one teacher through direct quotes from the teacher’s classroom, the teacher’s own reflections, and Michie’s observations of classroom and other teacher-student interactions. Like all narratives, these profiles involve choices of omission and inclusion.

See You When We Get There: Young Teachers Working for Change. Consequently, the essays herein deal with a variety of subjects, although I often refer to issues related to the teaching of mathematics since I have been a mathematics instructor in the . Some essays are purely academic and some have to do with the philosophy of education from a global perspective. Moreover, several are geared toward self-development, since we, as teachers, students, and parents, all strive for happiness and success in life.

This makes teaching significantly important and difficult work and can leave teaching-as a craft-wide-eyed in response. Worse, those outside the bubble of education can understandably struggle to understand the problem. What are they teaching in those schools anyway? How is it any different from when I was in school? Well, as it turns out, much of it is different from even five years ago. Starting with literacy. 10 Ways Teaching Has Changed In The Last 10 Years. 1. Data (about student achievement, for example) is more visible than content. While teachers have always led, historically teachers have ‘shown leadership’ within a classroom and, at times, in schools and even districts.

3. Description this book Gregory Michie’s first bestseller, Holler If You Hear Me, put him on the map as a compelling and passionate voice in urban education.

Gregory Michie’s first bestseller, Holler If You Hear Me, put him on the map as a compelling and passionate voice in urban education. In his new book, Michie turns his attention to young teachers of color, and once again provides readers with a unique and penetrating look inside public school classrooms. Featuring portraits of five young teachers (two African Americans, two Latinas, and one Asian American) who are “working for change,” Michie weaves the teachers’ powerful voices with classroom vignettes and his own experiences. Along the way, he examines what motivates and sustains these teachers, as well as what they see as the challenges and possibilities of public education

  • This book has incredible, relatabl stories of real teachers in urban schools. It poves that though we still have areas to improve, eduation has come far from where it has begun in this country. I recommend it.

  • I have been blessed with the privilege of taking a class/workshop with Michie and am just as invigorated by this book as his class. This book profiles the experiences, both good and bad, appropriate and inappropriate of teachers in urban schools. From the beginning, Michie acknowledges and addresses criticisms of his previous writings as well as discusses his intellectual struggle with the fact the he is/was a middle-class white man teaching poor, urban children of color. He also recognizes that this book is written from his perspective and therefore is filtered through his eyes rather than the teachers (though he tried to free it from his personal reflection as much as possible and just "show" these teachers in real world situations). His goal is not to profile five "good" or "star" teachers, just five real teachers struggling to teach for change, struggling to help their students change their lives and worlds.

    This book showed me that even "good" teachers (I think they're all good teachers in this book, but that's just me) screw up. Even good teachers have bad days. All urban teachers, particularly new teachers, especially ones who teach against the status-quo and push their students to think critically about everything they read about and learn about, sometimes fall. But they have moments of triumph as well. They have moments where students go above and beyond expectations, and moments where they see just how much these "ghetto" or "low-achieving" students know about their world.

    This book gave me hope and ignited a new fire in me. I hope it inspires you just as much.

  • Michie is one of the few educators out there that consistently crafts his writing with such care, compassion, and insight. I really enjoyed reading this book. I think that as teachers we need to read our narratives and see them in a practical public forum, like Michie provides, instead of just an academic policy chart. Michie's writing is consistently reflectively and engaging. I highly recommend this book to anyone in the teaching profession, or the academic world.

  • It's such a great book, I have to read it for class, but if it wasn't required to read, I would definitely read it on my own. I recommend this book.

  • This is the dumbest book I have ever had rammed down my throat. This book claimes to be advocating change to public, high-needs schools but all it really shows is the class envy of a bunch of mindless liberals. The problem with people like Michie is they have been away from the real classroom for too long. They get too involved in there higher education indoctrination that they forget what it is like to be a real public school teacher. Michie, like others who indoc higher ed., live in a dream world and they think their "progressive ideas" are going to improve public education when in fact all it does is put our children in deeper trouble. My warning to you is if you have to read this book keep in mind that there is a bias against anything with common sense. Just as important, "progressive ideas" will only make our children "feel good" and will never improve the quality of their education. Maybe Michie's next book will be "We lied to you. How liberal teacher education programs are out of touch and a waste of time."
