Tony will be discussing his latest book, I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had: My Year as a Rookie Teacher at Northeast High and how spending a year as a high school teacher impacted his life and what it’s really like today in America’s classrooms. A surprisingly poignant account, I'd Like to Apologize to Every Teacher I Ever Had reveals the daunting struggles so many teachers face as they play out a myriad of roles in their students’ lives, alternately functioning as parent, counselor, friend, and social worker.
As an actor, Tony Danza had conquered nearly every entertainment realm - TV, movies, even Broadway - when one day three years ago, he felt a powerful urge to chase a childhood dream and become a teacher. After dazzling viewers of such hit TV shows as Taxi and Who’s the Boss? and delighting Broadway audiences, he figured that, even with his lack of teaching experience, he still stood a good chance of keeping a classroom of high school kids engaged. How hard could it be? As he found out, really hard.
