Jack Woodson was a thermal design engineer for four years until he was laid off from his job. Now, as a teacher, he faces new challenges. Conference calls have been replaced with parent conferences. Product testing has given way to standardized testing. Instead of business cards, Jack now passes out report cards. The only thing that hasn't changed noticeably is the maturity level of the people surrounding him all day. Learn Me Good is a hilarious first-person account, inspired by real life experiences. Through a series of emails to Fred Bommerson, his buddy who still works at Heat Pumps Unlimited, Jack chronicles a year-in-the-life of a brand new teacher. With subject lines such as Irritable Vowel Syndrome, In math class, no one can hear you scream, and I love the smell of Lysol in the morning, Jack writes each email with a dash of sarcasm and plenty of irreverent wit.

What an entertaining treat, told with good humor, framed creatively, kept largely clean and often quite funny. The author could easily have become cynical, but remains upbeat. The sequel looks excellent too. Read full review

An engineer turned third grade teacher shares his daily life in the classroom through email correspondence with a former colleague. Working in an inner city school in Dallas was ripe with anecdotes. Very funny for anyone who has spent time in the classroom. Also great word play! Read full review
