So Ya' Wanna' Be A Teacher is a humorous revolutionary book that tells exactly what goes on in a typical American public school. E-book version is available at Kindle, at Nook and at Smashwords.

Description: (Education, Satire, Autobiography) So Ya’ Wanna’ Be A Teacher tells the whole amazing true story of what really goes on in the typical American public school. The author was an English teacher for thirty-four years in a middle, junior-high and high school and knows all about the problem student, problem classes, crazy’ problem parents, student fighting, cheating, the Educational Aristocracy, nutty field trips, administrivia and bizarre assembly programs. The teacher in his career had taught over four thousand students, broken up over two-hundred and fifty fist fights, participated in over seven hundred fire drills and listened to loud school bells ring over a hundred and fifty thousand times. So Ya’ Wanna’ Be A Teacher! is a very funny work that also identifies the true causes of educational inefficiency that the politicians and the press either can’t pinpoint or are too afraid to reveal. The revolutionary book will inform the reader why Jimmy Brown doesn’t write well, why public schools are no longer about students learning academics and why American public school democratic education is failing the nation. The book is living proof that truth is often stranger than fiction. So Ya’ Wanna’ Be A Teacher! is author’ Jay Dubya’s sixteenth e-book.
