Product Description

Review

“This book has a clear ring of authenticity. . . . Aspiring teachers would be well advised to read the book before going to a faculty of education. It contains the kinds of revelations you will never find at teacher’s college. . . . Buried in those wacky, ribald stories and lists of “off-the wall” tips, you will find shafts of light and a few undeniable truths about the teaching life.”
The Chronicle Herald

About the Author

GERRY DEE is an award-winning Canadian comic. Every year, he plays more than 150 often-sold-out shows across Canada and internationally. His DVD No Reading Ahead is one of the top-selling stand-up videos in Canada. His latest one-hour special Life After Teaching aired on CBC in January, followed by his series Mr. D, where he plays the starring role. Gerry can also be seen on The Score, where he plays Gerry Dee, Sports Reporter, interviewing (kind of) some of the world's great sports figures. Gerry is often compared to Bill Cosby, with a little more edge. He was born in Scarborough, Ontario, and currently lives in Toronto.

Anyone who has watched Gerry Dee's stand-up or his T.V. show will also enjoy this book. Teachers will also get a kick out of it with his stories about being a substitute and many others.

All retired and future teachers will enjoy the humorous but true reflection of the profession. Current teachers will be too stressed to laugh.

I enjoyed Gerry's stories in this book almost as much as his CBC series....a funny and realistic portrayal of life in the classroom - something he and I have in common....he's right - it is harder than it looks.....as a teacher or parent you will share his frustrations with bringing the next generation along.......
