TODD'S HILARIOUS TEACHING MEMOIR IS OUT!

With the publication of the memoir, Todd is now a candidate for the 2015 Thurber Prize for American Humor.

 

“I was the walking-around definition of learning on the job as furiously as possible. My students never knew I wasn’t degreed-up and certified, and they wouldn’t have cared if I was. They just didn’t want any homework.”

Todd Sentell, from Can’t Wait to Get There. Can’t Wait to Leave


Can't Wait to Get There. Can't Wait to Leave

 

MAKE FUN OF HIS HAIR AND HE'LL GIVE YOU A PIECE OF CANDY!

From America’s funniest golf novelist comes an eye-opening, true-life account of his corkscrew, mid-life career change predicament: for years he taught special education students who didn’t necessarily want to be taught anything ... much less come to school. But who ultimately teaches the teacher?

Exactly, the students do.

In this warm-hearted schoolhouse memoir ... at sharp turns wildly hilarious, heartbreaking, and ferociously revealing, written in a hugely engaging vignette form rich in situational humor ... you’ll witness a teacher trying to herd cats with world-class whimsy, classroom creativity, and a wiggly rubber chicken.

It’s a deeply affectionate memoir, brilliantly conceived with a novelist’s touch, well enjoyed from beginning to end ... or dip in anywhere and be instantly entertained. You’ll also discover that the people holding up the educational process from time to time aren’t necessarily the kids. Can’t Wait to Get There is also a story about the modern state of the sometimes cantankerous classroom union between special education teachers, parents, and administrators.

Todd is a master observer and commentator, writing the truth with deep affection and titanic wit, making this book a masterpiece in the literature of the classroom.

Lamar, in a rare calm moment, said it all: “Mr. Sentell, those were the best days of my life!”

Mr. Sentell didn’t disagree.
