Everyone working in education has a story to tell; stories which fill your hearts with joy, stories which inspire you, stories which have you laughing out loud and stories which have you shaking your head in disbelief! Whether it may be that dreaded time a child escaped from the classroom by jumping out of the ground floor window, or the mystical powers of a wet paper towel used by teachers to ‘cure’ a myriad of ailments, there are so many memorable moments that happen in classrooms every single day.

This book contains an eclectic collection of narratives from education professionals who explore the treats, truths, trials and tribulations of working in education. Whether you are an aspiring teacher, an early career teacher, an experienced teacher, a former teacher, or whether you are simply interested in learning more about the weird and wonderful events that happen in schools across the country, you are invited to ‘dip in and out’ of each chapter as you enjoy our engaging, uplifting, inspiring and entertaining chronicles from the classroom.
