180 Days of Madness and Merriment: Some Memoirs of My Experience as a Teacher in Baltimore City

Front Cover

My book was written as a diary to describe many of the experiences I've had as a teacher for over 35 years in Baltimore, Maryland's public schools. The stories contained in this book range from the humorous to the tragic. The diary has been organized to cover a term of 180 days, which is the mandated length of a full school year. In reality, the stories in the diary are excerpts from my memories of teaching from 1948-1986. They fit into current news topics about our American schools.

This book is the outcome of the encouraging comments of my friends who said to me, "You ought to write a book."
