Book Review of Teacher Man

Teacher Man
Teacher Man
Author: Frank McCourt
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs
Book Type: Paperback

Helpful Score: 1

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.
