Hello all, I enjoyed this book but I was not sure she was exactly “teaching with her heart” but rather with her ego. I did think that in the beginning she was very modest and all about the students. That may have purely been because she was new at her job, and wanted to excel. Once she was put into a position of power and grew more and more powerful, things just came very easily to her. The part in which she said she had never assumed she would lose when running for congress was downright egocentric. I did enjoy reading this book because I believe that she did have good intentions and did a lot for her students, however she grew to care more about what she was doing for the students, rather than how it affected them.
