The Story of the Unlucky Teacher and her Koalas is a must read for any educator who believes that all children have the ability to learn and be successful. The Unlucky Teacher's koalas are representative of the students who attend America's public schools-students who are poor and hungry, students who have learning disabilities or physical impairments, students who have been taught not to believe in themselves. Refusing to allow the stress of high stakes tests and humiliating comments from the community deter her, The Unlucky Teacher leads her koalas and their families to a triumphant victory that defies the societal stigmas that are pervasive in the koala bears' everyday lives.
