    I want to recommend an amazing biography I read recently about a young
    teacher, Jhumki Basu, who developed a revolutionary teaching idea –
    including students in curriculum development. She taught tough teenage
    immigrants and minorities, often from violent environments. She also had a seven year battle with breast cancer that she lost in her thirties. Her father, Dipak Basu, wrote the book “Mission to Teach” (http://missiontoteach.org/)
    to commemorate his daughter’s amazing advances in the school system and
    to inspire and motivate his readers to help change the world we live
    in. Jhumki proves to be a strong female role model with drive and heart.

    This book is truly life-changing and I recommend it to anyone
    looking for a little inspiration 🙂
