About the Author

Reviews

"Reading Carol Rodgers's book The Art of Reflective Teaching: Practicing Presence is like being invited into a space where teaching becomes more expansive and where the reader once again believes that teachers can do profoundly important and transformative work."--Democracy & Education


"Carol Rodgers presents here an informative and engaging discussion of teacher education and provides a lot of the 'whys' of what happens in schools and what can happen. The author is as at home talking about Dewey as she is discussing Freire and Piaget. From the standpoint of more philosophical levels of educational theory, Rodgers is right on with the way she brings together these and other experts who have spent their whole lives striving to find better and more equitable approaches to teaching."--Critical Issues in Teacher Education


"Thoughtful, inspiring, and full of ideas to think about and put into practice."--Teachers College Record
