    Story
    (464)

    Long before he starred on some of television’s most beloved and long-running series such as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and went on to distinguish himself in a variety of film and stage roles, Tony Danza was a walking contradiction: an indifferent student who dreamed of being a teacher. Inspiring a classroom of students was an aspiration he put aside for decades until one day it seemed that the most meaningful thing he could do was give his dream a shot. What followed was a year spent teaching 10th-grade English at Northeast High - Philadelphia’s largest high school with 3,600 students....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I think that all my teacher friends would enjoy it and I would like non-teachers to listen.It sheds some light on what teachers deal with in the classroom.


    What other book might you compare I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had to and why?

    Educating Esme


    What about Tony Danza’s performance did you like?

    That he spoke from the heart.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    His story about Alex. All teachers (at least that I work with) come across those kids that they would love to adopt. You know that the kid deserves a better chance. Wish you could save all those that need it...

    Story
    (12952)

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    "Hilarious!"

    What did you like best about this story?

    In my mind, this is the perfect book on audio. It is just like Tina Fey is talking to you, and her delivery is spot on. I walked through the forest wearing my ipod and laughing like crazy! My dogs gave me quizzical looks, but I couldn't help myself.
