Never Too Old to Teach is a heart-warming story of a middle-aged man's first year of teaching high school after spending twenty years in a corporate cubicle. Written in a humorous, straightforward style with minimal technical jargon, this book provides richly detailed accounts of events, lessons, and conversations that actually took place in the author's special education English classroom. Goldman's accounts are accompanied by narratives and reflections that give the reader insight into the true nature of teaching high school English to a diverse student body with learning disabilities, covering issues such as maintaining classroom control, effective curriculum development, collaboration with families for positive student outcomes, successfully working with administration, the benefits of teaching in middle age, and establishing student rapport.
