- Essential Reading for Educators.
- By Susan Jakes. Former student. Senior Fellow at the Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations.
At some point during the years I was her student, a little over two decades ago, I remember thinking it was a shame that more students in the country didn’t have a chance to have Maxine McClintock as their high school teacher.
