Teaching in a modern day high school is never boring. Ten years into his career, Jeremy Adams discovered that there was something "just not right" about his classroom, that he had "become a weird amalgamation of drill sergeant and Socrates, comedian and paper pusher, motivational speaker and disciplinarian.” Sometimes hilarious, sometimes profound, Full Classrooms, Empty Selves is an entertaining account of modern education that culminates in a surprising thesis that is certain to provoke discussion for readers of all stripes.
“In this brilliant mid-career exposé, Jeremy Adams takes a brutally honest look at himself and the teaching profession as he guides his readers to a profound understanding of their place in the world of learning. The author fills our hearts with both hope and despair as he examines the future of education in this inspiring "teaching memoir."
Dr. Kim Flachmann, Writing Program Coordinator, California State University, Bakersfield
“Full Classrooms, Empty Selves is a book about two things: the problems and possibilities of modern public education. A memoir that is both deeply personal and profoundly hopeful, it should be required reading for people of all political persuasions who believe it is time to have a serious conversation about American education.”
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Majority Whip, United States House of Representatives
