Ah, the good old days before NCLB and standardized testing. Really though a fun and inspiring piece about teaching and being a student.

A beautiful capstone on a truly inspiring and at times hilarious trio of memoirs. With each volume, Frank McCourt shows his readers how much he (and the world around him) change and grow, allowing for lots of laughs and sympathy from his audience. This book is best read out loud, especially chapter six, which is all about the fine art of excuse note writing and how he turns it into a lesson for his belligerent high school students. A must-read for anyone who has been or is thinking about becoming a teacher.

If you liked Angela's Ashes, you will like Teacher Man. This is the story of Frank McCourt's days as a teacher in New York City. McCourt is humble and witty about his ability to teach but I doubt any of his students ever forgot him.

Frank McCourt is a wonderful writer. But he is also a fantastic reader for audiobooks! This continuation of his truly amazing life after "Angela's Ashes" is mesmorizing. I would give it five stars.
