About Crossing the Hall: Exposing an American Divide:
Lori Wojtowicz has spent her life in classrooms, 35 years teaching and now traveling the country as an educational consultant. She writes not of what she taught, but of what she learned. And the lessons were not easy. Her students provided a microcosm of American society, and she was forced to confront the issue of racism in her classroom, her country, and most significantly in herself. A journey in self reflection, she presents the questions she now believes white Americans must ask of themselves if there is ever to be equity. An unusual pair, Plato and Malcolm X, and all the students served as her guides. She writes because of them.

I taught for 35 years in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Now in retirement, I work as an educational consultant for WestEd, a non-profit, research and development company. Instead of my classroom, I now work with hundreds of teachers in their classrooms across the country. We work for equity in literacy, working to close the education gap. My favorite new role is as a grandmother. I love my life on 16 acres with my husband, dogs, and horses.
