What drew you to teaching? Author Cornelius Minor says that no matter how we all got here, we all have a few things in common. For starters, we all want better, and that’s why Cornelius came to education.

In a special read-aloud edition of the Heinemann podcast, Cornelius reads from the introduction of his new book; We Got This: Equity, Access, and the Quest to Be Who Our Students Need Us to Be.

Here now is Cornelius Minor with his introduction titled; We All Want Better
