~This book was won in a Giveaway~Let me say straight off that this book is important. Whether you're a teacher, LGBT or not, or a student wondering if maybe you should be a teacher, LGBT or not, or just some random dude off the street, LGBT or not, this is an important book. Because teaching is one thing that all of us have some sort of connection with, whether it's because we went to school or children or just someone we know, teachers in general have had some sort of affect on our life. That [...]

The stories are inspiring but the scope is limited. From an educator's standpoint, this edition of One Teacher in Ten heavily emphasizes the experience of teachers in progressive charter schools. There are some public schools included but they tend to be experimental or magnets where the school's own emphasis is on liberal arts, inclusion and self expression. I felt that this book did not speak to my own experience, or the experience of most teachers in mainstream public schools across the count [...]

As an LGBTQ educator, this book really resonated with me. I felt empowered and apprehensive as I moved from story to story. I really want to share this book with one of my administrators. Here's hoping for positive change.

This book has been sitting on my shelf for about three years. With all the turmoil in this country and an increased animosity towards the LGBTQ community, I thought it was time to read this book. I have mixed feelings about the stories. Some are hopeful, some are wonderful, some are troubling, and some are sad. And many don't reflect my life or where I teach. By this I mean, many of these teachers, educators, administrators work in the realm of charter schools or private schools, never stepping [...]

I loved this book. It was so inspiring! After reading this, I'm thinking of taking the same paths so many educators have taken already. I think living my authentic self at work is extremely important for my students. I need to do this as much for me as for the next generation. I only wish there was a Canadian version of this book as the views are very different and I hope that they are more positive.

I read this book when I needed to and am thankful for it. As a first year teacher, who is gay I drew a lot of encouragement from the stories. At times though the written selections seemed to blur.

**This was originally a review for a Librarything Early Reviewers Giveaway**Kevin Jennings, the editor of this series, came out to his school in 1988 - which was unheard of at that time- and became a leading voice for change in education and LGBTQ+ activism. But he didn’t know any other LGBT educators. There was no way for educators, gay and straight alike, to come together, exchange ideas, and to make schools better and safer places for their students. A few years later, the One Teacher in Te [...]

One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium: LGBT Educators Speak Out About What's Gotten Better . . . and What Hasn't is the second update from the original written in 1994. What is really impressive is that because it is updated approximately every ten years we have the opportunity to see how much we have progressed and what still needs to change. It is uplifting to hear the stories of so many brave LGBT teachers and how they, each in their own way, made change in their schools and communities. I [...]

A great assemblage of the recollections and experiences of educators from all across the spectrum of sexual diversity, including intersectional aspects of racial diversity, age, and a variety of types of educational institutions (public, private, rural, urban, etc.). Clustered into groups showing the best of what progress has been made in the decades since the original edition came out, to more nuanced stories of continuing conflict, to hard stories of where the struggle continues. As another re [...]

Gain understanding of current experience for LGBT teachers and administratorsWith stories of frustration and celebration, Kevin Jennings again checks in with LGBT educators about their experiences. A recurring theme is how the ability for teachers to lead authentic, open lives can lead to better quality of life for the teachers and more effective support and guidance for LGBT students.

I won this book on a good reads giveaway. I really appreciate that we are beginning to approach the LGBT community more directly in all versions of media instead of pretending that it does not exist. I found this book helpful and enjoyed reading the stories. Thank you!

This book was very interesting. I have many friends and family members who are teachers some of them are part of the LGBT community. The essays in this collection are very telling, all sides of the issues are represented. I would certainly recommend it.

I received this book as a giveaway. Most stories represent experiences of educators on the east and west coast. It would be interesting to hear the experiences of teachers in more middle US.

I was very pleased to receive this as a free book through the "First Reads" giveaway program.I really enjoyed reading the variety of perspectives and how inclusive it was.
