Applauding the true heroes of the classroom, this compilation looks closely at the teachers who change lives one day and one lesson at a time. Instructors from all backgrounds are covered, from literature and poetry to film and even those captured in comic strips. Detailed statistics are presented, proving that teachers really do make a difference, and a collection of side-splitting jokes and riddles celebrate the most unheralded, exhausting, income-challenged, and ultimately, rewarding of all professions.
A blend of touching stories, fascinating facts, and rollicking humor is presented in this entertaining look at the jaunt towards senior citizenship. Guaranteed to stir souls, stimulate minds, and tickle funny bones, the chapters include Why It’s Great to Be Chronologically Endowed, Grandkids Say the Darnedest Things, The Lighter Side of Aging, and Jest for the Health of It.
