Like My Teacher Always Said

Like My Teacher Always Said

Erin McHugh's last two books, Like My Mother Always Said . . . and Like My Father Always Said . . ., pulled together a rainbow of savvy, humorous, and ques­tionable wisdom from parents. Her next volume leaves home and heads for the classroom to celebrate what we gleaned from perhaps the most obvious candidates for learning: our teachers. The same quotation crowdsourc­ing McHugh has used so well before is at work again in Like My Teacher Always Said. . . . The book includes both full-page tales and short quips and is divided into chapters such as "Scare Tactics," "Advice That Stuck," and "Crazy Town." The material is exceptionally rich and comes from a diverse roster of characters--from grade school instructors and piano teachers to Catholic school nuns, guidance counselors, coaches, and mentors. This book is a perfect way to inspire memories of student days and an ideal gift for teachers to show your appreciation for the influence they've had on your life.
