While her Marine Corps training helped, Johnson found the caring parts of her personality more effective in dealing with the recalcitrant students she met as a teacher of English at "Parkmont High," an inner-city school in California. There, she has struggled to reach and teach a group of teenagers, many from immigrant families, who often revel in nonachievment and accept their roles as failures. Colorful anecdotes detail the successes and setbacks of an inspirational teacher with a crusty sense of humor who has resorted to "a little blatant bribery" and devised unorthodox approaches (one elaborate scheme involving kissing a kid who slept in class) to accommodate minority students' learning styles and improve their self-images. Humor tempers Johnson's gritty portrayal of her battle to keep her students from slipping through bureaucratic cracks. Her book radiates unsentimental affection for these kids, who "keep me coming back every year to my lopsided wooden desk, my crumbling bulletin boards, my outdated textbooks, and my own handful of dreams."
