Come lift your spirits! Best-Selling Author Dr. Mayra Fernández enthusiastically shares anecdotes and poems: the kindergartener who redefines "gringo," the girl returned to her abuser, the hungry boy with a solution, the principal who won't let her teach Shakespeare to barrio kids, the new teacher who feels she must learn seven languages before Christmas, the girl listening to her campesino grandfather’s stories understands why he won’t release his grandson’s Harvard diploma. Laugh, cry, cheer while learning workable strategies.
