Overview

Teachers are simply the best. They're the special breed of people who strive to infuse us with an appreciation for the miraculous world in which we live and a sincere passion for learning. What better way to sing their praises than by declaring more than a thousand great things about them? That's what the successful author trio of Birnbach, Hodgman, and Marx does in this fourth book of their highly successful 1,003 Great Things series. This wonderfully humorous book features entries such as:

o They are as happy about Friday as you are.

o They tend to have highly legible handwriting.

o Who else knows how important it is to be line leader?

o They are excellent spellers.

o Teachers know about Roman numerals.

o They are more afraid of the principal than you are.

o They lend you milk money when you forget yours.

o They're not in it for the money.

Preface

Teachers are perennially overworked and underpaid bastions of our society. Everyone depends on them, everyone demands miracles from them, and in later life no one ever forgets them. Once in a while it's nice to take a break from the school-issues battlefield, sit back, and contemplate all the truly great things about teachers.
  • Who else keeps you out of jail by warning you not to let the American flag touch the classroom floor?
  • Who else can spot troublemakers so fast?
  • Who else knows the difference between oak tag and poster board?
  • And, no one can decorate a room using cut-out magazine pictures, Scotch tape, and markers the way teachers can.
One thing is certain: teachers know a lot more than you think. Read 1,003 Great Things About Teachers and start catching up.
