Books by Mary MacCracken and Torey Haden inspired me to become a teacher of students with disabilities. I loved their toughness and tenacity, and vicariously celebrated their moments of reaching the children and helping them learn and grow. I read these books again and again, and enjoyed them more each time.

A Circle of Children book. This book was fantastic, chronicling Mary MacCracken's teaching of emotionally disturbed children, starting as a volunteer and through the years as she worked in various rooms. I loved how the children were described; each child fleshed out and loved despite his flaws. MacCracken took her experiences over the years and fictionalized the settings and the names, but behind every word breathes authenticity.

From the author of international bestsellers A Circle of Children and Lovey comes an inspiring true story of a gifted teacher's determination to understand the 'rotten' city kid everyone has given up on. Sitting quiet and withdrawn at a battered school desk, Luke had the looks of a shy angel – and a past that special needs teacher Mary MacCracken could barely believe. Already Luke had been picked up 24 times by the police. He'd set over a dozen major fires, and had a staggering record of thefts

  • Mary McCracken is hands down the finest author I have ever had the pleasure of reading. She speaks with great knowledge about her methods of teaching the mentally disabled "damaged" children at her school. And in teaching them, she also teaches herself to love the children and in return the children learn to love one another, their selves and their teacher. She discovers that love is the key to reaching inside a disabled "damaged" child. Once the child learns to their self and others, the child discovers a love for reading, and learning more and more. They discover the world is a book just waiting to be read, delved into, and explored. Some of the damaged children can be reached deep inside enough to become functional. Unfortunately some children are so damaged it is impossible to reach them at all. These severely damaged children sadly usually end up in hospitals for the mental disabled.

  • This was one of the finest books I have read in a while. Mary is a very kind and patient woman. She loved all her children. She learned from a woman named Helga, who was a native German. Helga taught a small girl named Sarah, who was unable to walk when she first arrived at the school, how to walk. When Helga left because the school wouldn't let her remain until she got a degree, Mary was wondering how she could reach the children. But she went in and took over a classroom where a teacher was injured. She taught three young boys how to go to the toilet, and feed themselves.After the teacher returned, she joined a class with a man name Dan. You will love this wonderful story.

  • I had a copy of this years ago and lost it. I finally found one to add to my library!

    If you work with autistic kids or are thinking about it. Read this. If you have an autistic child or family member, read this. If you are just interested in autism (or special needs kids in general...read this).

    What this book showed.......LONG before autism was as frequent as it is today.......was that to make a difference, you must get inside the world of the autistic child and not force them into yours. By going into theirs, you they will follow you as much as they can, in yours.

    Amazing book!!!!!!

  • Mary Mac Cracken is a talented writer. The story of how she became a teacher working with severely emotionally disturbed students is spellbinding. Her recollections of her first few years are funny, frustrating and inspirational. I highly recommend this book to anyone . Those working with or aspiring to work in special education will really appreciate her work.

  • It was as expected. I'd read it before, but years ago.

  • I have been a teacher since 1980 and found this book to be amazing and inspiring. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who teaches, has taught, or who loves working with children of all ages. Some of the language is pretty rough, but it is not used out of context or for shock value. The language is real and raw and brings the reader right there in the classroom. Excellent book.

  • This book was the reason I decided to become a teacher. It is an oldie but goodie. Arrived quickly.

  • Very good.
