For all teachers: It's your life told here, dear teacher, with all its glories, warts, joys, and heartaches. The poems of Brod Bagert, America's performance poet, chronicle the frustrations of the profession, as well as their transformation into the unexpected victories that make it all worthwhile. The cast of characters includes the second grade from hell, that hopeless, control-freak-of-a-colleague, the faculty restroom, the custodian, Rambo teacher, and even the cafeteria food. Brod speaks in the voice of the classroom teacher, and the voice rings true. Here's a perfect gift for yourself or for a teacher you love. Illustrated by illustrator/author Kim Doner. Winner of the Oklahoma Book Award for Best Illustrated Book.
