Overview

Teaching: A Job with No Accurate Job Description.
The federal government, state education departments, university professors, and "experts" all have plenty of ideas and fix-it schemes for public education. Unfortunately, none of those people know what it's like to actually be a teacher. After 33 years in public education, Dr. Wilson (Bud) Frampton does know what it's like. He spent 15 years in the pressure-cooker environment of middle school education, and an additional 18 years in the even more crucial testing ground of high school education. When it comes to the ups and downs of daily life with hormonal adolescents, Dr. Frampton is a genuine expert.

Oops, I'm a Teacher is a memoir about the antics and actions of teaching, a candid look from the trenches, illuminated by anecdotes of entertaining and challenging situations, all told with unflinching realism. It is a genuine look at the environment, obstacles, and issues that permeate the lives of teachers, which are rarely addressed. Oops, I'm a Teacher is also an object lesson in how a non-traditional pathway into secondary education, with military and business experience as a foundation, created a methodology allowing Dr. Frampton to transform ordinary classroom experience into something extraordinary. Dr. Frampton challenges the praise and criticism modern education receives, suggesting that the real issues are seldom seen or discussed beyond school walls.

Anyone who has spent time in the school system will recognize the memories unfolding within these pages - and for those who want to learn what education is really about, this eye-opening memoir will provide food for thought. Oops, I'm a Teacher educates, entertains, and gives priceless insight into an important job that most people don't know enough about.
