"Mr. Gish, May I Go to the Bathroom?" My First Year as a High School Teacher.
Gish, Steven C.
This book presents the narrative of one educator's first year as a high school teacher. The teacher was a former lawyer who returned to college to get his teaching certification. The book uses the teacher's reflections from the journal that he kept throughout the school year. It is divided into weeks. It begins with a chapter about the day before classes started, and the subsequent chapters examine weeks 1-39 of the school year. The final chapter, written in April of his second teaching year, presents a look back and a look ahead, reflecting on what he learned from his experience and how he will do things differently as a result.
