    Now here at last, is McCourt's long-awaited audiobook about how his thirty-year teaching career shaped his second act as a writer. Teacher Man is also an urgent tribute to teachers everywhere. In bold and spirited prose featuring his irreverent wit and heartbreaking honesty, McCourt records the trials, triumphs, and surprises he faces in public high schools around New York City.

    Overall

    This was the most wonderful memoir. McCourt has spoken for many educators who just want to be left alone to teach in classrooms of America. We want the politicians to just "Leave people alone" We are all doing the best that we can, considering the talent we have been sent. We help some to grow academically, but mostly we want to help them to grow into productive members of society. The politicians want us to send out a group of lemmings. Education is about teaching to differences and teaching diferently. McCourt celebrates just that as he reads to us about the love of his life... Helping children, and young adults to see the wonder within themsleves.
