This was an amazing tale of Frank McCourt's teaching career in the the NYC public high schools. He aptly describes the essence of good teaching...how you know if the kids are with you. And his kids ARE with him, leading to both hilarious and poignant tales both from the classroom and from his childhood. This book, from the author of Angela's Ashes, written at age 66 after retirement from teaching, is a wonderful story!
