Teachers don't have lives outside of school.....

This is an adorable book that is so true about the perspective of elementary kids. I fell in love with the page where all of the teachers are wearing "gym clothes" and playing in the gym afterhours. It was after their meals in teh cafeteria and then before bed they are all lined up in pajamas and robes at the drinking fountain waiting to brush their teeth. This was a darling story.

Understanding Students

I dont think parents realize some of the conceptions children have about their teachers. This book just lets us realize one of them. It was well written.

Teachers do live at school, don't they?

Whenever my students see my outside of the school setting, they are always shocked. This book is about a boy was sure all the teachers lived at school, ate dinner in the cafeteria, slept in the lounge, etc., until his teacher moves in to his apartment building. Oh no!! He not only sees her carrying out garbage, but sees her wearing sandals that reveal she has TOES!! This is cute for kids (who still may persist in believing teachers live at school), and it would be an ideal gift for the soon-to-be-teacher. Funny text and pictures make this a winner for 6-8 year olds.

Future educator notes importance of Miss Malarkey's life.

If you are a teacher, this book is a must have!! This book shows students that teachers have a life outside of school. How many of us can remember seeing our teacher in an outing in town, and wonder what they were doing outside of school? This book is an EXCELLENT book for the classroom teacher to have.

Funny, silly, entertaining story about what teachers do!!

This is a hilarious story about one boy who thinks his teacher lives at school. We get to see what teachers "really" do when students leave. What is the real reason why the teachers lounge is so mysterious?? Judy Finchler answers this question and many more through the eyes of one boy. Kevin O'Malley's illustrations capture each moment perfectly. His use of colors and shades to create a story within the pictures make this book an excellent one to have in every classroom. My students and family loved this book!! It's always brought out when we need to have a good laugh:)
