Silly Back-to-School Picture Books about Teachers

Let me first state that it's a good thing that I'm a teacher or I might get into trouble for suggesting these books! It is good for teachers to be able to laugh at things... even ourselves. Teachers are often seen seen as 'stern and stiff' but the teachers in these books are rather unique characters that hopefully will break down the stereotypes that many students have in their minds about us. I think that these will be great additions to any back to school reading list! The first book is my book!

Jokes about Teachers

My Teacher's Secret Life                                Miss Nelson is Missing!

My Teacher Sleeps in School (really funny)                 The Teacher from the Black Lagoon

What Teacher Can't Do                                     My teacher for President

As we are on the topic of books for your classroom library, you can see my 10 Classroom Library Tips for helpful and creative ways to have the best library for your class.

For more teacher humor, check out this post: Do Teachers Have a Look? In this post I wrote about a funny incident that happened to me (and I'm sure it happens to other teachers as well).

Nyla, I just found your blog today, and of course I followed you. I really like your idea about the funny teacher books. I had only heard of 2 of them before reading this post. Thank you so much for sharing!

I would love it if you could come and visit me at my blog. :)

Happy 4th of July!

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
