In a three-part series, Chicago Tribune reporter Stephanie Banchero followed a top teacher for a year as she and others like her were brought in to reform a school that had failed for six straight years. Montie Apostolos turned around the lives of many of her 34 eighth-grade students, but after a year in the low-income, inner-city school, the tough professional decided to leave classroom teaching and move into an administrative role outside of Chicago.
