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

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.

“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.
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.
