I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had free pdf "I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had "is television, screen and stage star Tony Danza's absorbing account of a year spent teaching tenth-grade English at Northeast High -- Philadelphia's largest high school with 3600 students. Entering Northeast's crowded halls in September of 2009, Tony found his way to a classroom filled with twenty-six students who were determined not to cut him any slack. They cared nothing about "Mr. Danza's" showbiz credentials, and they immediately put him on the hot seat. Featuring indelible portraits of students and teachers alike, "I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had "reveals just how hard it is to keep today's technologically savvy - and often alienated -- students engaged, how impressively" committed" most teachers are, and the outsized role counseling plays in a teacher's day, given the psychological burdens many students carry. The book also makes vivid how a modern high school works, showing Tony in a myriad of roles - from lecturing on "To Kill a Mockingbird" to "coaching" the football team to organizing a talent show to leading far-flung field trips to hosting teacher gripe sessions. A surprisingly poignant account, "I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher "I Ever Had is sometimes laugh-out-loud funny but is mostly filled with hard-won wisdom and feel-good tears.

About Tony Danza

TONY DANZA, before he grew up and starred in such classic TV series as "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?" as well as on Broadway, was a "discipline problem" at Long Island's Malverne High School, for which he is deeply apologetic. These days, he divides his time between New York City and Los Angeles.
