Growing up in Minneapolis in the forties and fifties, the author attended an elementary school where her dad was the chief engineer. This afforded her opportunities for weekend adventures in what she considered her magical kingdom. Playing hide and seek, roller skating in the halls, and riding on a statue with Joan of Arc are just a few of her fond memories. Being a teacher in the sixties provided hilarious stories of show and tell, animals in the classroom and lockers for first-graders attending a high school. Returning to teaching after thirty years was both fun and shocking, . There were plenty of changes in that time span. What everyone kept asking her was, aWhatas the biggest change?a You might be surprised at the answer, unless you are a teacher. This is a book for everyone who ever went to school, has or had children in school, or has taught school.
