Renee Lovekids is an elementary school teacher with the privilege of teaching in one of the most diverse areas in New York. To honor her school's multicultural population, the illustrations in the book are a reflection of her school and district. Several comical events have occurred in her classroom over the years, and she has begun to transform these experiences into stories. "Homework Rules!" is her mantra as any of her former students know. Renee shares Señora Cruz's obsession with homework and believes the homework instructions she assigns benefit her students and contribute to their success. To make her Friday homework assignments interesting, she often assigns students to watch cartoons they enjoy and to identify the Main Idea, Sequence, and Author's Purpose. However, her attitude towards homework has begun to change, and she has adjusted her homework format.
