Summary

What happens when a teacher does not share a cultural background with her students? In this thoroughly engaging account, one North American teacher describes her three years teaching Haitian children in an inner-city preschool. Focusing on classroom behavior, concepts of print, and storybook reading, this book will challenge many widely held assumptions and cultural perspectives about the education of young children.
