PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Actor and TV personality Tony Danza this week took part in orientation sessions to prepare for his new teaching role in the Philadelphia School District.

His experiences reportedly will be captured in a new A&E reality show called "Teach."

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported the 58-year-old actor is not certified, so he will share a classroom at Northeast High School with a more experienced instructor while he helps teach English.

So, how did Danza feel about his new career path?

"Scared," he admitted to the Inquirer.

"It takes a certain amount of hubris that you think you might be able to do this. I'm determined."

Danza is best known for his performances in the sit-coms "Taxi" and "Who's the Boss?" He also was the host of his own chat show, which ran two seasons.

The students go back to school Sept. 8.
