Overview

Teaching for What traces my turbulent career as an educator in Connecticut public, vocational and parochial schools, and how that experience drove me into depression and early retirement. It is also a somewhat scathing critique of the system of education, in general.

The book begins with my student teaching days in a suburban public high school, and then follows my career, going forward, in an urban Catholic elementary school, a regional vocational high school, and, finally, a suburban public school. In between, it discusses my experiences, not only as a teacher, but as a Student Council Adviser, a baseball coach, a union president, and a social studies department chairman. The book explains my descent into depression, culminating in my ultimate recovery, which was achieved only when I decided to retire from the teaching profession. It is an emotional, brutally honest account of the day to day happenings in schools. Unfortunately, the traumatic experiences I had are all too common for many people in education. Because of that, even though the story is based in Connecticut, it should have wide-spread appeal to teachers, administrators, students and parents of student.
