Frank McCourt, 1930-2009


Several summers back, McCourt's book Teacher Man kept me in the profession and inspired me to write about my experiences. His book--about his 30 years in New York public schools--is hilarious, poignant, and true; McCourt admits his insecurities about teaching, much the same way I feel almost every day in the classroom. This New York Times article sums up his teaching days nicely.
