I love teachers who think out of the box. What a unique man, he made his students stop and think in the moment and reach for a future. I love the Poems he used on High School students to make them reach into themselves and find a deeper meaning, like "Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep and doesn't know where to find them." The book was written in a down to earth, open and honest way.

A long awaited book about how his 30 yr.teaching career shaped his second career as a writer of Angela's Ashes and Tis. A tribute to teachers everywhere featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty. His unconventional methods leave a lasting impact on his students. Every bit as good as Angela's Ashes.

Frank Mccourt's story continues as he relates his experiences as a teacher in New york City. If you have read his other two books, you don't want to miss this one.

As a retired teacher who can recognize most of the students depicted in McCourt's Memoir, I found his book both delightful and heart wrenching. I also was impressed with some of the teaching techniques that he employed-ones not found in a college education course. The reader also learns something about McCourt as a man as well as a teacher. I liked this book very much.

The third installment in the autobiographical books of Frank McCourt. This one is geared totally toward his years of teaching... not too much about personal life or family, although there are snippets here and there. As usual, very entertaining and humorous. His take on life is very worth the read. I'd recommended reading his two previous books (Angela's Ashes and 'Tis) before this one.
