"Educating Esmé" by Esmé Raji Codell

Educating Esme: Diary of a Teacher's First Year - Esmé Raji Codell

This book was definitely entertaining, but I wonder about how much of it was factual. It claims to be the diary of a first-year teacher, but it seemed very idealistic and unrealistic.

And it didn't sit right with me that there was a time when her students stabbed a substitute teacher in the back with a pencil and she wasn't really bothered about it. That's kind of a big deal...

I did love the idea of building a "time machine" filled with books. I might have to use that someday.
