TeacherLaughs: Gargantuan Guffaws for Teachers and Parents

New audio book provides quips, quotes, and anecdotes about the classroom.

Oct. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Any teacher knows that the classroom is no laughing matter. They also know that a little
laughter in the classroom can go a long way to relieve stress and burnout. A newly
released audio book for teachers, and for parents who love what teachers do, is
chuck-full of delightfully amusing stories, jokes, and funny stuff for not-so-funny
school-related issues.

TeacherLaughs: Quips, Quotes, and Anecdotes about the Classroom is by best-selling
author and keynote speaker Allen Klein, and narrated by actor and former teacher,
Marlin May.

The audio book is filled with hilarious and witty anecdotes about teaching and learning from the preschool classroom to the college lecture hall. The selections come from comedians and notable personalities including Milton Berle, Ellen Degeneres, and Robin Williams, as well as less well-known teachers, students, and parents. They bring a light-hearted look at such subjects as forgotten homework, students who misbehave, and the dreaded parent-teacher conference.

The audio book is divided into three sections,
-Teacher Matters,
-Classroom Matters, and
-Parent/Teacher Matters.

Below is a sample from each section:
At a conference on education, a vote-conscious state senator boomed from the speaker’s platform, "Long live our teachers!” From the back of the hall came the query, “On what?”
                                             —Bennett Cerf

One day, after a group discussion about family celebration, one little boy in my preschool class raised his hand. He said, “My family celebrates Lent.” A girl sitting next to him said “What’s that?” He very seriously replied, “You know, that fuzzy stuff in your dryer.”
                                          —Valeka Peterson

“PTA” means different things to different people. If you’re a parent, it means Parents Threatening Action. If you’re a school administrator, it means Principals Taking Aspirin.
                                          —Robert Orben

TeacherLaughs makes a great gift for parents to give to teachers at the holiday season, at the end of the school year, or for World Teacher's Day, which occurs on various dates around the world.
