I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year As a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High (Crown Archetype)
Beloved actor and rookie high school teacher Tony Danza will discuss and sign his new book about his year of teaching tenth-grade English at Philidelphia's largest high school.
"In this endearing memoir, Danza defies expectations…[filled with] refreshing honesty…provides insights into a teacher’s daily life." --Publishers Weekly
"It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of a group of teens and proclaim yourself their teacher. It takes even more to be a good one -- someone who sees each student as an individual with a unique life story. Tony Danza put himself forward to teach children and learn from them, knowing that the more he really understood these kids the better teacher he could be for them. We easily forget how truly difficult it is to be a transformational teacher and in these pages you can see that’s what he became." --Rosalind Wiseman, New York Times bestselling author of Queen Bees & Wannabees
We're expecting a crowd, so due to time constraints, here are some guidelines for the event:
Tony Danza, before he grew up and starred in such classic TV series as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? as well as on Broadway, was a "discipline problem" at Long Island’s Malverne High School, for which he is deeply apologetic. These days, he divides his time between New York City and Los Angeles.
