Who was that person — the one who taught you that books are wonderful?

We'd like you to meet Ms. Hyde, an 8th grade ELA teacher in a Title I middle school whose love of books and passion for teaching inspire even the most reluctant students to get hooked on reading.

Watch the magic that happens in Ms. Hyde's classroom, where students are engaged in close reading and deep discussions. It's pure joy, and it'll (almost) make you wish you could go back to middle school, if only you could be in her class.
