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.

"Wow! Get ready to learn more than Urban Dictionary could ever possibly teach you. The chapter on Furries is one of the most original and hilarious things I've ever read! I dare you not to laugh out loud!"
 -Robin O'Bryant, New York Times bestselling author of Ketchup is a Vegetable and Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves 

"If you are a teacher and think you are sometimes living in a surreal dimension, this book will be a are not alone! 'Jane' is a gifted storyteller, you will chuckle and you will sigh... And if you are looking for the perfect gift for your kids teacher or a teacher friend, BUY THIS BOOK!" -Joyce Kaufman, EdD, Host of The Joyce Kaufman Show, Newstalk 850 WFTL

 "In one page-turning short-chapter after another --- each twisted, hilarious, sad, and scary --- Jane Morris gives us a beautifully written exposé about the worst sides of today's students, parents and school administrators."
-Bruce Tulgan, bestselling author of Not Everyone Gets a Trophy: How to Manage the Millenials  

"I shook my head. I winced. I shuddered. I laughed out loud. In my book, those are the four qualities of a masterpiece. Jane Morris not only lifts the curtain on the horror teachers in our country face every day, but shows that her chosen profession is every bit as dangerous as a waitress at Waffle House."
-Laurie Notaro, New York Times bestselling author of The Idiot Girls' Action-Adventure Club
"Jane Morris, author of Teacher Misery, either has the patience of a saint or is certifiably insane, I can't decide which. Eh, who cares, because the stories she tells are unbelievable and yet, I'm positive they're true. This book left me laughing and reaching for a stiff drink."
-Jen Mann, New York Times bestselling author of People I Want to Punch in the Throat
"As the daughter of two teachers, I've heard a lot about misbehaving students, parents, and administrators in my time, but none of it compared to the stories in Teacher Misery. Funny, freakish, and full of moments that make me glad I didn't follow in my parents' footsteps!"
-Sarah Knight, bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

"Morris dishes on the truth about trying to teach in this culture and it is hilarious, informative, and insightful. But it will probably have you looking into private school so start saving."
 -Stefanie Wilder Taylor, New York Times bestselling author of Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay
"As with any good comedy, there is truth hidden within its pages. As funny as it is shocking." -Librarything 
"This is one of the best books I've ever read!" -Kathryn Raaker, host of Let's Just Talk Radio
"Eye-opening, intriguing and insightful." -Night Reads 

 "Honest and accurate but never unkind, Teacher Misery is a great read filled with dry wit, and illuminates the lives of those to whom we owe a hell of a lot! Well worth a read." -Luke Marlowe, The Page Is Printed 

"Hilarious, eye-opening, and hard to put down.".-Goodreads 

"I LOVE THIS BOOK. As a teacher myself, while reading through these hilariously absurd anecdotes, I laughed hysterically, cried sympathetically, and by the end just straight up put my head in my hands. If you're a teacher, this book will not inspire you to fall back in love with your profession, but it will make you thank the sweet heavens that SOMEONE out there understands." -Emily Lerman, author of Emily'
