Educating Esme: Diary of a Teachers First Year by Esme Raji CodellA must-read for parents, new teachers, and classroom veterans, Educating Esme is the exuberant diary of Esme Raji Codell’s first year teaching in a Chicago public school. Fresh-mouthed and free-spirited, the irrepressible Madame Esme—as she prefers to be called—does the cha-cha during multiplication tables, roller-skates down the hallways, and puts on rousing performances with at-risk students in the library. Her diary opens a window into a real-life classroom from a teacher’s perspective. While battling bureaucrats, gang members, abusive parents, and her own insecurities, this gifted young woman reveals what it takes to be an exceptional teacher.
Heroine to thousands of parents and educators, Esme now shares more of her ingenious and yet down-to-earth approaches to the classroom in a supplementary guide to help new teachers hit the ground running. As relevant and iconoclastic as when it was first published, Educating Esme is a classic, as is Madame Esme herself.

Arevalo, who worked in marketing, and Wade, who was a lawyer, started chatting about their love of food. It only made sense because Wade had previously worked as a pastry and line cook in New York while Arevalo worked as a server there. The Manual quizzed Arevalo and Wade on the first time they fell in love with macaroni and cheese, how their cookbook came about and the best macaroni and cheese to make on a date. Do you remember the first time you each fell in love with macaroni and cheese? EW: My father made a homemade mac and cheese that just kicked the pants off the stuff in the box and I was addicted to it from a pretty young age. AA: My Italian grandmother was the star cook in our house, and she would make an amazing homemade Italian-style mac and cheese which is the mac and cheese I first fell in love with.
