It demonstrates the powerful and far-reaching influence of a teacher who made it her primary aim to nurture her students’ ethical ideal and passionately dedicated herself to this aim. Our educational system has much to learn from Erin Gruwell and her students. If you are an educator, I highly recommend that you read this book.


It will give you hope and inspire you to be a better teacher and human being. I would like to respond to the two previous reviewers’critiques of Erin and her book. First of all, studies have indicated that students do better when they stay with each other and with the same teacher assuming the teacher is a caring one for an extended period of time, the longer the better.

Erin and her students must have recognized this truth and her example proved this hypothesis quite well. Secondly, so what if Erin only taught for four or five years?

I speculate that the difference she made in the lives of her students in those four years is more significant and lasting than the contribution some teachers make to their students in a 20 or year long career. Erin is serving our society and our students on a larger scale by speaking and providing training to teachers on a methodology that yielded astounding success.

I don’t think she left teaching because she was “burned out”. She was smart enough to know that she could serve the world more effectively in a different capacity. And this one is to the reviewer who called Erin’s book “self-serving and trite”.

Like you, I am sure all of us–as teachers–have spent our own money on our students and felt that every dime has been worthwhile. However, I don’t know how many of us has actually worked a second or third job like Erin to cover our students’ expenses. I am saddened that this extraordinary teacher has been so harshly criticized for what I consider an extraordinary act of love.

This book gives examples of how to teach from your heart. I like to think of myself as an effective teacher. I am a Mexican-American male Language Arts Teacher with a profound background, having lived at several socioeconomic levels myself.

I am blessed with the ability to identify with students at many levels on their terms. I gained so much more understanding concerning how to reach out to the students who you feel are largely at risk. One person found this helpful. Oh my goodness, this book definitely exceeded my expectations! I was so inspired and motivated by this book!

Anyone who wants to be a teacher, is a teacher, loves kids, or loves a good moving book should definitely read this book! I will warn you though this book is almost guaranteed to make anyone with a heart cry a few times while reading it! If you get this book make sure to also check out The Freedom Writers movie and The Freedom Writers Diary since they are talked about a lot in this book. If you’ve already watched the movie and read the diary and loved them, then definitely read this book because it gives a lot more insight than both the movie and the diary give.


Erin Gruwell is an amazing person. She was able to reach her tough students and make connections with them that “the system” had written off. Much as people would like to deny it, there is racism in our schools. If given a chance, I think that all kids can succeed.

It’s the stereotypes and told that you’re stupid that brings a lot of these kids down. Poverty and their domestic situations don’t help in the least either. Erin saw through everything and at such a young age! I believe it’s people like her that truly change the world for the better. Every teacher needs to read this. Even more so in today’s world! Great book and very inspiring!
