Thanks, Frank McCourt (author of Teacher Man), for talking about your 30 years of teaching on BookTV C-SPAN2 today. He talks about “less than enlightened administrations.” It’s worth the time of anyone interested gutty descriptions of teaching and student learning. I appreciate your humorous linking of your dog training background with classroom teaching. Your descriptions of those who told you they want “to give back” and “contribute” by teaching are familiar to many of us, as are your comments about their short tenure in classrooms. Great story for anyone interested in a non-conventional description of schooling.
