Published by AuthorHouseBooks
Emerging from a very protective, strictly Catholic, middle class family, Henry is equipped with a bachelor's degree, and an attache case when he enters the world of work. Lessons including tax avoidance, tax evasion, loneliness and blackmail are soon some of the problems he faces. Those plus a few years of military service convince him that his first love must be teaching.In the public schools, new words enter his vocabulary and he faces new challenges. In a small, conservative school, these battles center around the Who, What, Where, When and How of journalism. The problems are who may a new teacher date, what teaching methods are allowed, where may a new teacher live and drink, when must a new teacher be home and how long will the students and parents continue to educate him.The problems and vocabulary change when Henry signs a contract to teach in a large, metropolitan high school in Nevada. Now there are lessons to be learned about theft, wedding chapels, prostitution, Keno, legal guardianship, child neglect, child abuse, parole, comps and under cover police acting as students. On the other side of the coin are lessons in trust, love, scholarships, financial aid, advanced placement, real estate and fellow teachers to add humor and understanding to all the problems.The thirty year run in education is a rewarding, challenging, enjoyable and humorous life. With those lessons learned, he feels prepared for retirement.
