You know him from Taxi, Who’s The Boss? and countless other TV shows, films and plays. But long before he made it big in Hollywood, Tony Danza received a degree in education. Teach: Tony Danza chronicles the experience of the veteran actor as he returns to his roots to take on his toughest role yet, as a first-year teacher at Philadelphia’s largest urban high school. How will the kids at Northeast High School react to being taught 10th-grade English by an actor? Under the watchful eye of the high school principal and an in-classroom teaching coach, Danza applies incredible creativity and ceaseless dedication to his real-life duties as a teacher, while taking on a few extra roles outside the classroom — and becoming a true member of the Philadelphia community. In this touching series, viewers will not only see the challenges and rewards Danza faced as a first-year teacher, but also how his students end up teaching him a completely different lesson than he planned on . . . a lesson about life.

Danza as teacher is a brilliant idea, particularly because he represents the ordinary person who steps into a classroom. It's not easy and unless you love teaching, you won't find many rewards for your labor. Teaching,f or some strange reason, pays minimum wage once you work out the number of hours you spend at it, in the classroom and out--meeting with parents, students, helping out here and there, grading papers, etc. I've known plenty of teachers who burn out in a year or two, many disgusted at the lack of respect students show teachers and others appalled at the expectations of parents who don't support their own kids. Excuse me. What happened to homework time? Bottom line--too many students graduate stupid, unable to read and write competently, unqualified for college work. Having taught college, I know how unprepared they are. Hope this series is an eye-opener.
It really shows how much teachers are up against in todays world, they are against a whole new level of cheating and have so much more to worry about. Im glad to see a teacher who isn't willing to just let it go but actually wants to help the students out and make them better people. I hope he keeps up the good work
I love the concept of this show because it shows just how difficult teaching can be. I have been both a student and a teacher, and let me tell you teaching is a very tiring job. People think that teaching is an easy job but it's really not. And the sad part that regardless of how amazing you are at teaching, you get paid the same amount of money as the teachers that do absolutely nothing.
