The journey of a teacher, and what he learned along the way. The true story of an American teacher, Becoming Mr. Henry traces the development of the author from a young boy bewildered by the world to a knowing mentor of street-wise youth. Along the way, Mr. Henry dispenses ample insight on current educational debates involving high-stakes testing, abstinence education and zero tolerance drug policies. Often off-beat and funny, and sometimes touching and poignant, Becoming Mr. Henry is mainly about teaching – why it matters, how it can be successful, and why it may be an essential tool for liberating the human spirit.
