She is a teacher for ‘last resort’ teenagers. In other words, she teaches kids who are not accepted at other high schools due to disciplinary problems. (often severe problems: volatile outbursts, pulling knives upon others, etc.) She is trying to teach them calmness, quietness, stillness. In order to get support from coworkers, she needs to support her belief that quietness will produce positive results. So, I strongly recommended your book.” –Myobu
