Education: Roast & Toast: Anecdotes of 60+ Years of Teaching
There once were two spirited teachers Who reminisced and talked like preachers. They gave up the small chatter And wrote something of matter The daily life of a teacher must be full of challenges, excitement, and joy, right? But in reality, it might be full of more gaffes, goofs, and laughs than we ever imagined. In Education: Roast & Toast, two seasoned educators inspired by the humor of sixty-plus years of experience share a collection of humorous, slightly embellished anecdotes that reveal an intriguing behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it is really like to be a teacher. Through their tongue-in-cheek exploration of the comical adventures, unpredictable mishaps, and baffling challenges that teachers encounter on a daily basis, Diane Martin and Linda Thomas allow educators to be seen as they areeccentric, imperfect, and vulnerable, despite their degrees, knowledge, and experience. While taking a playful look at the backward evolution of education, Martin and Thomas teach other educators, administrators, and even students the art of laughing at themselves without losing sight of the seriousness of the profession. This collection of foibles reveals the often humorous interactions among students, teachers, and administrators. It reinforces the notion that simple communication really can be stifl ed by misinterpretation.
