About the Author

Barry McRaith

The author is a devoted urban educator of twenty-eight years, choosing to teach and lead across/within a variety of secondary schools: public (charter, magnet, and test-based selective enrollment), Catholic, and Yeshiva. Additionally, the author has taught university courses for future educators and community-based writing workshops for adolescents. The author has been awarded masters degrees in English (Northwestern University) and Educational Leadership (University of Illinois – Chicago).

The author has also received numerous teaching awards and recognitions. His greatest recognition, however, is the quiet, knowing smile of the student who, when challenging himself/herself beyond that which was imagined, accomplishes. For the author, the transcendent power of learning originates in those moments.

He and his family live in Chicago.
