If you're looking for that perfect gift for teacher, this book is it. I found Ms. Flynn's writings fun, heartwarming & brutally honest. This book is sure to take its readers 'back to school', I could smell my own junior high cafeteria! It reminds us that the state of our public schools is everyone's business---the good, the bad & the ugly.
