About this title


In A Funny Thing About Teaching: Connecting With Kids Through Laughter...and Other Pointers for New Teachers, Jack Rightmyer tells the story of his journey as a new teacher and how he came to see the importance of humor in his classroom. He also gives valuable advice on discipline, testing, bullying, and even coaching.

The book teaches through personal narrative, engaging readers in a real-life story about what the author has learned in his 28-year teaching career working in both urban and suburban schools and teaching at every level from sixth grade through college.

With humor and common sense, the author tells personal stories that impart practical advice in an engaging, nonthreatening manner. Even readers who are not in education will enjoy reading about his experiences, because of his theme of living a life of humor and learning how to not let the little things become bothersome.

This book is ideal for teachers of any subject and any age, though it is probably most appealing to teachers of 6th grade on up.
