If School Desks Could Speak is a collection of true, humorous and heartening vignettes from the classrooms of middle- and high-school students on both sides of the Atlantic. From being addressed as babe' to finding a father's personal item glowing in the dark; from dodging flying spit balls to flying business class; from confiscating student amorous messages to helping a teenage mother cope with an unplanned pregnancy - these are only a few examples of life in the trenches. You will be drawn into this honest testimony to the real world of a classroom teacher.
