Thank a teacher

Frank McCourt was a public school teacher in New York for thirty years before he wrote a little story about his youth in Limerick, Ireland.  That little story just happened to stay basically at the top of the New York Times Bestseller List for two years and get made into a movie.  After that he wrote two more books, one about his first years in New York, and another about being a teacher.

He was a teacher first.  He shared his life with about a hundred students per day for 30 years before he shared it with the rest of the world. Those were some lucky kids.
