FICTIONAL AND AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL BOOKS BY, FOR AND ABOUT TEACHERS.

Dear Match Book,

I am a high school math teacher by day and a reader by night. Could you please recommend some books about education? I’m especially looking for novels that show the fun and funny aspects of being a teacher. A few I’ve found in the past are “Up the Down Staircase,” by Bel Kaufman, and “Teacher, Teacher!,” by Jack Sheffield. Please help me find some joy
