Helicopter Parents, Special Snowflakes & Other Bullshit
Teacher Misery perfectly encapsulates the comical misery that has become the teaching profession.
Jane Morris’s strange, funny, and sometimes unbelievable teaching experiences are told through a collection of short stories, essays, and artifacts including real emails from parents, students, and administrators.
From the parents who blame their son’s act of arson on the teacher for causing him low self-esteem to the student who offers to teach the teacher how to sell drugs so she can pay her bills, one story is more shocking than the next.
An important book for teachers and non-teachers alike, Teacher Misery paints an amusing and thoroughly entertaining picture of what has become America’s education system.
