GLEN ELLYN, Ill. - September 28, 2021 - (

William Burghardt, a produced playwright of "Just Before the Snow Melts" and "Shadow Stock," former journalist and theater critic, actor, director, former radio host, and a high school teacher for more than 15 years, has completed his new audiobook "When Mongrel Dogs Teach": an eye-opening peek into the mind of a man.

Published by Audiobook Network, author William Burghardt's new audiobook is a well-rounded and heartfelt book highlighting the author's most memorable experiences as an educator, peppered with insight into the detail and care espoused by the best educators.

The author's experiences showed him that his high school students were more in touch with reality than his colleagues and supervisors. The narrator reflects on certain real-life and imagined experiences guiding young people to better understand the world around them and their potential role in it.

Covering a 15-year period, this book is not just an indictment of the current educational system but focuses on the evaluation of teachers by people ill-equipped to evaluate anyone. At the same time, it is a book bursting with ideas about life, roads taken and not taken, the magic of maps, overcoming anxiety and panic attacks brought on by incessant "observations," why women were doomed by the church's attacks on Mary Magdalene, mysteries lingering regarding the JFK assassination, fighting a movement to "kill" Huckleberry Finn, and an educational environment in need of drastic changes. Three ghosts from the author's past guide him on this journey.

Listeners can purchase the audiobook edition of "When Mongrel Dogs Teach" by William Burghardt through Audible, the Apple iTunes Store, or Amazon.
