COLLEGEVILLE PA – Comedic actor Tony Danza, who spent a year teaching in a Philadelphia high school and then created a television documentary and a book about the experience, visited Collegeville last week (Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012) to share with the public what he’s learned himself: teachers don’t get enough credit for the hard work they do, he told The (Pottstown PA) Mercury.
Danza’s book, titled “I’d Like To Apologize To Every Teacher I Ever Had,” details his discoveries teaching English to a 10th grade class at Northeast High School in Philadelphia.
The book was released Sept. 11. Only four days later, Danza was a guest of the Towne Book Center and Cafe in Collegeville, and spoke at Ursinus College. Kit Little, marketing director for the store, told The Mercury that Danza’s stories describe the challenges teachers face, and their “amazing tenacity.”
