A teacher has the intellect of a philosopher, the stamina of an athlete, the patience of a saint, and the pay of a teacher.
Your poor teacher endures chaotic classrooms, parent-teacher conferences, edicts from the principal, homework that’s incomplete, and complaints from school boards, principals, assistant principals, hall monitors, parents, and other teachers. Even more impressive: your teacher puts up with you. This long-suffering professional deserves a reward, and a nice, shiny apple just won't cut it. No, your teacher deserves a few good laughs.
From award-winning comedy writers Gene Perret and daughter Linda Perret, these 175 original one-liners will give teachers all the laughs of a night out at a stand-up comedy club in the quiet of their own bed. (Let’s face it, that’s where all teachers want to be after a long day in the classroom.) Teachers’ Lessons Last a Lifetime (or at Least Until the Next Exam) will make teaching—and consequently, learning—more fun.
