5 Memoirs of Teachers

It’s that time of year again when students and teachers return to their classrooms. In the last few years, I’ve read a few memoirs by teachers about their experiences. As I’ve mentioned before, the best thing about memoir is how it can take what we think of as a common experience and show us just how different life can be from one place to the next and just how different curriculum can be from what our teachers are really trying to teach us.
