For all teachers: It's your life told here, dear teacher, with all its glories, warts, joys, and heartaches. The poems of Brod Bagert, America's performance poet, chronicle the frustrations of the profession, as well as their transformation into the unexpected victories that make it all worthwhile. The cast of characters includes the second grade from hell, that hopeless, control-freak-of-a-colleague, the faculty restroom, the custodian, Rambo teacher, and even the cafeteria food. Brod speaks in the voice of the classroom teacher, and the voice rings true. Here's a perfect gift for yourself or for a teacher you love. Illustrated by illustrator/author Kim Doner. Winner of the Oklahoma Book Award for Best Illustrated Book.

I had Mr.Bagert at my school today and I bought this book. I also got to experience how much work he does to make a simple poem. I was so very honored to have him sign not only my copy of Rainbows Head Lice and Pea Green Tile but my poem book and I hope to one day send it to him I'm not a teacher nor an adult but I got into the thinking of a teacher. It helps people understand what teachers feel and think so it is a great book in my opinion. I reccomend this book to anyone who feels like they have alot of work and see how much a teacher has. =D
