Introduction

Your days are spent dodging spitballs, fielding homework excuses and battling the class clown for attention. Evenings find you grading homework and getting the sound of ringing bells out of your head. And you wouldn't have it any other way.

Chances are, you wanted to be a teacher from a very young age. Chances are, another teacher, just like you, ignited that spark in you to become an educator. He or she made it a joy to learn, and encouraged your talents and skills. So the tradition continues, the torch is passed, and it is your turn now. It is up to you to inspire, entertain and enlighten a whole new generation of children. Our hats are off to you. You are heroes to your students.

Within this collection of cartoons, we hope that you will also see yourself as you really are: an entertainer, a cheerleader, a comedian, a guardian and a counselor. May these cartoons make you remember what made you want to be a teacher in the first place. Most importantly, may these cartoons provide you with much-needed comic relief after a long day in the classroom.

And if you're a student, we hope this book gives you a new perspective on those sometimes wonderful, sometimes horrible thirty hours a week you spend in class. Teachers aren't all out to get you— even the ones that, as you'll learn in this book, really do have extrasensory powers, the latest in child-zapping devices and a serious ax to grind!

So step away from that chalkboard, teachers around the world. Separate yourself from your red pen, put your feet up on your desk and give yourself a time out. You deserve it more than anyone.

Bought this as Father Day gift for Dad. He is a teacher. Everyone in the house who has read the book loves it. Though some of the cartoons may give teachers ideas about ways to make education tough for students. I know my father had a smirk on Math Essay cartoon.

John McPherson is brilliant! He captures the essence of the humor and ridiculousness of teenagers, teachers and school. As a veteran educator, he gets me giggling.

Good gift for teachers Dec 15 2008

I wanted to get something different for the teachers at my children's schools. I bought two of these and two of the New Yorker Book of Teacher's cartoons. I really have to say I like the New Yorker one better.

As a "seasoned veteran" in the field, believe me....this is one of the FUNNIEST bunch of cartoons I have ever seen!!! Obviously..... assembled by someone with a bizarre and yet authentic knowledge of the teaching arena, it is a wonderful addition to any educator's library.
Ya gotta get a copy..,.,and give a copy! I have it displayed with pride on my elegant Drexel coffee table where it adds a bit of whimsy to the other more academic mags and books!
