Teacher Man

Sad news. Master storyteller Frank McCourt died on Sunday. I listened to the audiobook of Teacher Man in 2006 and really enjoyed it. It was right during the middle of taking all my classes to get my teaching certificate. It helped to keep me positive and optimistic when all the talk of pedagogy and constructivists was boring me to death. If you haven't read it and want to hear some good stories about dealing with kids, check it out.


  1. I never was fond of Angela's Ashes, but did like Teacher Man. 30 year teacher veteran.

  2. I saw his passing, but not sure his writing will make my reading list anytime soon....
