¿Qué hace un profesor si en su primer día de clase un bocadillo vuela por los aires? McCourt en su primer día de clase en el Instituto McKee de Nueva York lo recogió del suelo y se lo comió, para gran sorpresa de sus alumnos.

The author of Angela's Ashes brings us his self-deprecating reflections on a 30 year teaching career. Early on, he laments that teaching-college doesn't prepare you at all for dealing with a real high school classroom. High minded theories of pedogogy don't matter if you can't get the respect and attention of a room full of teenagers that have been in school going on 12 years straight.

His constant self-doubting is incredibly human. He has story after story that recaptures the mental haze of forging his own path. His best moments didn't come because he was a genious and a natural, but because he followed his gut, took a risk, worried about it for quite some time until it finally worked out. Or didn't.

As a teacher with a thick Irish accent in New York City, there's a lot to be learned from his classroom stories about cultural and racial classes. Or the tension of teaching poetry to New York's future dockworkers and hair dressers. Or dealing with parents that have a very low idea of teachers.

For me, leaving construction work and grassroots organizing behind to go into teaching, this book has been more insightful than any of the classes I've taken so far. ( )

There are teacher and then there are the kind of teacher that Frank McCourt was. Here he tells of his 30-year career teaching English in New York City high schools. He was scared to death on his first day…and who wouldn’t be, facing a room of 16-year-olds at McKee Vocational and Technical High School on Staten Island, where his job was to teach five English classes per day to teenagers who were never expected to go any higher than 12th grade…if that. The year was 1958 and Frank McCourt was 27 years old and just out of New York University himself. One doesn’t have to be a teacher to appreciate his account of how reading the students’ obviously self-authored absence excuses inspired him to create a composition assignment they couldn’t resist: write a note of excuse from Adam to God. I would have loved to have tacked that one. At 38, he left for a doctoral program at Dublin’s Trinity College, returning two years later without a degree. That is a story for another book. He relates two of his most memorable teaching experiences… a vocabulary lesson involving a picnic in the park with ethnic foods brought by students in his creative-writing class, and a recipe-as-poetry class in which students read recipes aloud to the accompaniment of assorted musical instruments. As I said there are teachers and then there are teachers like Frank McCourt. If you read his memoirs’ you’ll be more than just entertained…you’ll be enlightened. ( )

Yes, Frank McCourt, the author of "Angela's Ashes" and " 'Tis," has done it again - distilled from the mash of his life a strong and alluring narrative brew. You start reading, one story leads to the next, and all of a sudden two hours have passed.
 
At the very least, McCourt has produced a collection of aphorisms that will grace classroom posters till the last red pen runs dry. ("You'd be better off as a cop. At least you'd have a gun or a stick to defend yourself. A teacher has nothing but his mouth.") And at most, he's described the teacher we all wish we'd had.
 
McCourt's many fans will of course love this book, but it should also be mandatory reading for every teacher in America. And it wouldn't hurt some politicians to read it, too.

McCourt pays deep homage to the three decades he spent teaching English...punctuated by moments of crisis, connection and transcendence.

The same dark humor, lyric voice and gift for dialogue are apparent here....The teaching profession's loss is the reading public's gain, entirely.
