This book explores the unique experiences of African-born educators and students in North American K-12 classrooms, as well as those of education faculty and administrators. The collected essays examine how attributes assigned to immigrant teachers by the host community of students, colleagues and administrators can serve both as conduits and deterrents for effective teaching.
