It was never in author Joe Gillilanda€™s plan to become a teacher, certainly not a college teacher and most certainly not an English teacher. But thata€™s what happened, and hea€™s never looked back. In A Teachera€™s Tale, he explains, how by neither planning for nor seeking a life of learning and teaching, lacking a syllabus or lesson plan, he discovered that a life in academe lay in his patha€”a path hea€™s followed for more than fifty years. A Teachera€™s Tale begins in 1932 with Gillilanda€™s first experiences in schooling and concludes in the summer of 1955 just as he completes his apprenticeship and stands on the brink of becoming a qualified instructor in a small college in east Texas. This memoir presents a collection of stories about his experiences as a teacher and a college student. A story of schooling deeply immersed in the arts and humanities, A Teachera€™s Tale shares Gillilanda€™s love of the university and how it compelled him to seek a life devoted to teaching, primarily in the community college arena. Through this narrative, he brings together a philosophy of higher education based on the importance of arts and humanities in todaya€™s high- tech world.after Ia#39;d left the lab and AMSCO behind and had gotten back home, Mama met me at the door to congratulate me, her elder ... a cashiera#39;s check to deposit in a checking account in Austin, or should I open a checking account here in Corpus?
