Tales of Teaching: Or Where Is That School?
"Here are witty tales of teaching in 6 schools from 1942-1977. Being sent with 3 other students from teachers college to take over and run a 4 room school, grades 1-8 in rural wartime Maine. Where their first school problems started when, without being given a key to the building, they climbed through a window to get inside. Where they ran from a Canadian lynx after a school picnic. Teaching 3 grades, 4, 5, and 6, in a two room school in Appalachian hills. Where kids were fished out everyday from a creek that ran through the school grounds. Where they chopped down a leaning flag pole to make ... Where she let 6 boys out of school one day to chase and round up pigs on the loose from a nearby farm and let all the other kids stand at the windows to watch and cheer. And the junior high in New Hampshire in the 70's. Where she got rid of a motor boat brought to class by a 6th grader. Where 8th grade boys learned about general math by buying imaginary cars they picked from newspaper ads. And there are 50 recipes from teachers and friends of those years and those places."--Back cover.
