Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807055867, Paperback)Twenty completely new stories of negotiating the triumphs and challenges of being an LGBT educator in the twenty-first century
For more than twenty years, the One Teacher in Ten series has served as an invaluable source of strength and inspiration for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender educators. This all-new edition brings together stories from across America—and around the world—resulting in a rich tapestry of varied experiences. From a teacher who feels he must remain closeted in the comparative safety of New York City public schools to teachers who are out in places as far afield as South Africa and China, the teachers and school administrators in One Teacher in Ten in the New Millennium prove that LGBT educators are as diverse and complex as humanity itself. Voices largely absent from the first two editions—including transgender people, people of color, teachers working in rural districts, and educators from outside the United States—feature prominently in this new collection, providing a fuller and deeper understanding of the triumphs and challenges of being an LGBT teacher today.

"Perhaps no profession is as challenging for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people than teaching. Working under constant suspicion arising from the long-held stereotype of LGBT people as pedophiles who are "after your kids," teachers who are LGBT face enormous challenges. The third edition of One Teacher in Ten allows LGBT educators to speak in their own voices about their experience of being LGBT in schools. Following on two volumes of completely original stories published in 1994 and 2004, the all-new third edition of One Teacher in Ten brings together stories from around America - and around the world - of teachers negotiating the challenge of being LGBT in the classroom. The result is a rich tapestry of varied experiences. From "Mr. G" who feels he must remain closeted in the comparative safety of New York City Public Schools to teachers who are out in places as far afield as South Africa and China, the educators in One Teacher in Ten span the full gamut of experiences, proving that LGBT teachers are as diverse and complex as humanity itself. Voices largely absent from the first two editions - including transgender people, people of color, and educators from outside the US - feature prominently in the new collection, giving readers a richer and deeper understanding of the diverse experiences of LGBT educators"--
