THE FIRST FIVE A Love Letter to Teachers

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Patrick Harris II

Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2022

Rarely will you discover a raw, gorgeously narrated love letter about a passion. This audiobook offers just that--and more. Patrick Harris II has spent his years connecting with young minds as a humanities teacher and breaking the glass ceiling for the Black and queer communities. Harris eloquently describes the personal qualities that make him successful: the fact that he is a Black, male teacher teaching Black students; his willingness to embrace failures, and his understanding of why teaching is his calling. Peppered with statistics and stories of shocking racist and homophobic experiences, as well as heartwarming anecdotes, Harris's audiobook will motivate listeners to appreciate the great teachers they've had and possibly inspire others to walk the path. A fabulous way to start a dialogue on the value of education and the importance of compassionate teachers. G.M.
