    1 thought on “Nothing's Impossible: Leadership Lessons From Inside And Outside The Classroom”

    1. A good summary of someone who has had every reason to be average, but she persevered through obstacles to do great things and to make a difference for kids.

    2. This book was an easy read: I finished it all in one night. Dr. Monroe is funny and assertive, two qualities that are too-often missing from portrayals of career women! I admired her self-confidence and keenness throughout the book. It is basically a memoir of a woman's career in education, from public school teacher at age 21 to educational administrator and consultant along with tips and advice for those aspiring to school leadership. I feel that this woman was someone who was very motivated t [...]

    3. I like this book because it is personal. Monroe tells *her* story, not someone else's. There are a few curse words but it is reality and that is what she was hoping to portray. Life isn't always rainbows and flowers and sweet stuff. Monroe took a tough situation and made it awesome, with the help of those who believed in the kids and each other. She started out, in her own school experience, being just put through so to speak. But she went on to do great things and through her I think a lot of k [...]

    4. I was fortunate to meet this extraordinary leader at an AP conference for teachers in Orlando and she was just dynamic. I would work for this woman in a microsecond because she "gets it." I teach in a small, rural school and often feel such despair when teachers just provide the basics. These children need to be pushed further because they are icebergs with so much beneath the surface. Dr. Monroe knows how to chart a course through the icebergs. She embodies the true servant-leader balance. I re [...]

    5. This book was written by the founder and former principal of the Fredrick Douglass Academy in NYC. My new principal recommended it to me so I decided to read it. I was struck by how much of the rules/procedures that Ms. Monroe developed were adapted by the SEED school. I felt like a lot of things I had been told in staff meetings were lifted from this book and that surprised me and made me smile.

    6. One of the most inspiring and insightful books about the urban education field I have read. Its a breath of fresh air and revitalizing. A great read on leadership too! Enjoy!

    7. Good read, this woman is an incredible public speaker, very motivational in person, the book didn't do as much for me.

    8. This book requires you to be familiar with the author. If you have not heard of Lorraine Monroe or read any of her earlier works, it is not very accessible.

    9. LM is way more dynamic in person, plus her book leaves out a lot of the actual nitty-gritty on how she got her school going. She makes it seem too easy.
