Teacher man by Frank McCourt( )

26 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of Angela's Ashes and 'Tis, a wonderfully engaging and appealing book about teaching and storytelling. In Teacher Man, Frank turns his attention to teaching: why it's so important, why it's so undervalued. He describes his own coming of age - as a teacher, a storyteller and, ultimately, as a writer. He instinctively identifies with the underdog, his sympathies lie more with students than administrators. It takes him almost fifteen years to find his voice in the classroom, but what's clear in the thrilling pages of Teacher Man is that from the beginning he siezed and hed his students' attention by telling them memorable stories. With wit, charm and irreverance, Frank McCourt tells his most exhilarating story yet - how he became a writer. Reader Profile: Frank McCourt was for many years a writing teacher at Stuyvesant High School in New York City. His international bestseller's Angela's Ashes and 'Tis have together sold more than six million copies
