Happy Tuesday! It’s that time of year again when kiddos go back to school & teachers are once again pouring their hearts into their classrooms full of young minds. To celebrate today on Top Ten Tuesday, I’m looking at more teachers in fiction. Specifically, teachers in books I’ve read since the last post I did on the subject (which was six years ago so it’s time for an update lol)
I loved being a student, and I hope I’ll always love learning. That’s one reason I love reading fiction so much – it teaches me all kinds of things that I didn’t learn in school. History was the subject I most enjoyed (not English, like everyone guesses lol) and other than the Bible it’s still my favorite thing to study.
Confession: I did not love being a schoolteacher (though I did love my students). It was so discouraging to have earned this degree in education – one of the most difficult undergrad majors at my college – and then realize in the ‘real world’ that it was not what I wanted to do long-term. I finally found my niche in teaching English as a second/other language to adult internationals until my Lyme Disease made it impossible to keep up that schedule.
Anyhoo…. without further ado, let’s look at some more teachers in fiction that I’ve enjoyed meeting on the pages!
