Come to Jesus

So I had a moment. It was small but significant. It happened at that point in the day where I had to go to the bathroom so badly I could have popped a squat behind my learning cottage (I didn't for fear of my large behind being seen by twenty second graders and God knows who else - not to mention I might have lost my job). Anyway, back to the moment. I realized today that the world should know, I mean really know, the ins and outs of being a teacher. Books on teaching/teachers/school/etc. could probably be in a head to head battle with parenting books. BUT, I have yet to find a book that is really a tell all, down and dirty synopsis of the world of teaching. Albeit there are so many different kinds of teachers and schools and demographics and blah, blah, blah. So you could probably have ten teachers write tell-alls and you would get ten drastically different accounts. Well, I am here to tell you that I will write a tell-all one day about teaching. I mean here I sit with my whopping ONE YEAR of teaching experience and I can already tell you, you don't know the half of it. Imagine what I could tell you after ten years, twenty, (shoot me if I get this far) even thirty! Now again, every situation is different. I just really think the general public should know. Why? Because we all went to school and had no idea what was happening behind the scenes. Because some people have kids who are in or will be in school in the coming years. And because it's just not fair for you all not to know how crazy teachers really are - if you are friends with one or related to one you are either thinking "my so and so isn't like that" or you are thinking "holy crap, that's why she/he's like that". So if one day far far away you come across a scandalous book that calls out the world of teaching, remember my come to Jesus moment and buy it. You won't regret it.

I also plan to write two other books at the moment just in case you were wondering. The first is a children's book that has no name yet but will be illustrated by my oh so talented sister. The second will be called "What She Would Do If No One Was Watching". You want to know now don't you?

Seriously, if one day you buy a book by me and you come to a signing and you tell me you read about the book dreams of a random blogger years ago, I'll give you a cut of the profits. **SIDE NOTE** I think we are at lofty goal #26.
