Silly Back-to-School Picture Books about Teachers

Let me first state that it’s a good thing that I’m a teacher or I might get into trouble for suggesting these books! It is good for teachers to be able to laugh at things… even ourselves. Teachers are often seen seen as ‘stern and stiff’ but the teachers in these books are rather unique characters that hopefully will break down the stereotypes that many students have in their minds about us. I think that these will be great additions to any back to school reading list! The first book is my book!
