I just had the pleasure of finding your Fall 2010 issue in the lounge of the Early Childhood, Elementary and Literacy Education department at Montclair State University in New Jersey. I am an adjunct professor who teaches beginning teachers classroom management skills as well as how to seek employment opportunities. I will be sharing some of the wonderful information that was contained in this issue with my graduate students .

I found the Journal Teachers of Color by accident. It jumped out at me from a magazine rack in the Social Sciences department at Queensborough Community College where I work. I applaud your message that highly qualified teachers of color are still needed. People of color and I dare be blunt and say particularly Blacks are grossly under-represented even in their own communities…. Anyway, I enjoyed reading Teachers of Color and if you ever need some of the lived experience in the hallways of an urban community college. Let me know. Have a wonderful day and keep up the good work.

“Our ad looks stellar!! We will distribute the magazine to our Board members and Chiefs accordingly. This is a powerful issue which speaks out about the power of leadership through President Barack Obama’s success and also, on a more personal note, it beautifully showcases our District’s Full-Page ad, highlighting our need to recruit highly qualified and culturally diverse teachers in our designated shortage areas. “
- Jennifer A. Tirré, Rochester City School District
“Every one here has fallen in love with the cover of the magazine so much , I was asked if you can send me an electronic version of it. They want to use your cover at a state wide meeting of school districts.
- Eddie Thomas, South Central Wisconsin School District
“What an amazing layout! I will certainly direct my database to your website. You offer a great service, and I am honored to have been selected to write for the magazine. I look forward to working with you again.

I was fortunate to examine the Fall 2010 issue of your magazine. It was at this time that I recognized just how valuable this multifaceted magazine can be for all concerned with education. I shared the one copy of the magazine which I borrowed with a few of my students; Immediately, they wanted to know how to acquire a personal copy. You will be pleased to know that each student with whom I shared the magazine was eager to have a turn taking the magazine home overnight for a closer reading. I am comfortable to assert that the magazine offers valuable and timely information on an array of timely topics. Moreover, the content is a rich supplement relative to topics studied from required course textbooks and periodicals. The magazine brings many critical issues to life in an easy-to-read and inviting format.The mere title of your publication Teachers of Color reminds me of the pervasive need to expand this population of educators in the U.S. There is a dire need to increase the number of males in this population. Clearly, your magazine is fulfilling an important role as a key informational resource for all who are interested in teaching and learning outcomes for k-12 students (pre- and in-service teachers and the general population at-large.) I genuinely believe that this resource can also serve as an excellent recruitment tool because it offers a realistic yet inviting portrayal of varying facets of teaching…
