Description
"The Teacher" is a fun, heartwarming, hilarious, moving memoir about mothers, teachers and their powerful lessons that stick with us. Told by one of Anne Gallagher's eight children – her son Marty – this book serves to illustrate who she was to the author's children, nieces and nephews. Anne Gallagher was a teacher. Whether she was making supper for a family of 10 people, or reading a book to a classroom of kindergartners, she was always teaching. Sometimes, she would spell out the lesson very clearly and other times, she would teach through the example of her actions. This book is a collection of stories about the final 12 days of her life, as she battled cancer. There are several funny and touching anecdotes mixed in, along with the lessons she was still teaching in her final days and hours. Even with her last breath.
