Description

Teacher Misery perfectly encapsulates the comical misery that has become the teaching profession. Jane Morris's strange, funny, and sometimes unbelievable teaching experiences are told through a collection of short stories, essays, and artifacts including real emails from parents, students, and administrators.

From the parents who blame their son's act of arson on the teacher for causing him low self-esteem, to the student who offers to teach the teacher how to sell drugs so she can pay her bills, to the administrator whose best advice is to "treat kids like sacks of shit", one story is more shocking than the next.

An important audiobook for teachers and non-teachers alike, Teacher Misery paints an amusing and thoroughly entertaining picture of what has become of our education system, without detracting from the overall point that what teachers have to put up with today is complete, utter, unacceptable insanity.

Nope.

I have been teaching for twenty years. I have a sense of humor about my job and an appreciation for the students whom I’m help educate. The author seems cruel and, frankly, unqualified to register an opinion after so few years of teaching.

Couldn’t even finish.

As an educator, I love hearing of others’ teaching horror stories. This book is just not funny. And it definitely couldn’t hold my interest. Save your money and/or your audible credits. This one isn’t worth it.

Too negative.

I am a veteran educator and while I know all too well that education is in a hard place right now and needs A LOT of changes, this book is just way too much negative for me all at once. There is a lot of good in education and I think we need to bring those to light too, not just negative stuff. I think this book intended good things... it was just way, way too much jammed down my inner being about the negatives for me.

Miserable Teacher

I’m a teacher in a large urban public school. None of these stories were shocking. I kept waiting for her to talk about the many students she loved. None of that. If I were to write a book it would be about absurd policies and a ridiculous student here and there that make the job impossible, but never the majority of my students. I’ve met teachers like this. Nothing makes them happy. They are the reason parents become entitled. I’m just disappointed that she couldn’t find any joy in teaching because there is just so much!

I wish zero stars was an option.

I have been teaching for 18 years, and I have a very healthy sense of humor. This book is not funny. It is mean and cruel.

A lot of boring unedited emails in their entirety

I appreciate that this book exists, but there were a lot of pretty uninteresting documents apparently with no editing or commentary, for instance, a psychologist's recommendations for very normal accommodations for Asperger's syndrome.

Tough talk

I really appreciated the blunt honesty with this book. it was raw, emotional, and triggering but I think more people should be aware of the teacher's experience and the systematic challenges associated with education and pedagogy. Future teacher's beware.

Relatable AF!

This authors stories had me in stitches. Relatable! I literally got stares as I laughed out loud as I listened during my walks, while sitting on the beach and chilling on the couch with my family! This book represents teacher reality. Teacher Misery offers support to any teacher suffering with feelings of isolation as they wonder about their own laundry list of wtf anectodal incidents that have left them bewildered and shocked at teacher reality. Listen while sitting pool side, drinking your favorite alcoholic beverage on your overpaid long summer break! Like me, you will not want it to end.

Factual. Brave. I feel validated.

Brutally honest. This is teaching in America. And yet, I wouldn't do anything else. Highly recommend for all new teachers and veterans.
