Book Description:
Everyone has encountered good teachers, bad teachers and flocks of mediocre teachers. Some of those we evaluate as not so good might have been much better had we been more receptive or devoted more attention to what they were saying. In spite of the large number of good teachers (so perceived by us or not), there are a few who rise above the crowd so far that they might be referred to as super teachers. Lou LaBrant was one of those few. This moving biography traces the extraordinary life of 102 years of Lou LaBrant the personification of a super-teacher. Her life is significant in the context of American education.
