This autobiographical story tells of Polacco's own struggles in school, and of the two teachers who recognize her special talents. Her classroom teacher, Mr. Donovan, understands that not all students learn the same way, or at the same pace, and adjusts accordingly. He also recognizes Polacco's gift for art, and recommends her for a special art class. There, Miss Chew further becomes Polacco's advocate and sets her on a path that will ultimately lead to an astounding career.

The Art of Miss Chew is personal, and touching, and a tribute to those teachers out there who go above and beyond the call of duty for their students.
