An American Teacher is fascinating reading for anyone concerned with the status of gays and lesbians in American society. Through her Memoirs, and through the story of her life and death as narrated by Jon Pahl, Loretta Coller has lessons to teach us all.

Abstract:
An American Teacher: Coming-of-Age, and Coming-Out, the Memoirs of Loretta Coller documents the life, loves, and murder of a lesbian in twentieth century America. In humorous, poignant, and powerful vignettes, Southern California educator Loretta Coller (b. 1931) illumines her struggles to gain a successful livelihood, find peace with a life-partner, and overcome the silences so often imposed upon gays and lesbians. In an Introduction and Epilogue, Jon Pahl—who Coller asked to help publish her Memoirs prior to her death, sets her life story in its contexts, and narrates the circumstances leading to Coller’s murder in 1994.
