About the Author
Doug Robertson has been an elementary school teacher for seven years now. As low man on the totem pole he moved around a lot, but it has given him a chance to experience all kinds of teachers and students. He now resides in southern Oregon with his wife and son, where he teaches third grade (again). For fun he trains for triathlons, rides his motorcycle, and makes small children cry at the mall. Doug vehemently resists the negative stereotype of teachers and fights for teacher rights as often as he can. He advocates for his students and loves and believes in each and every one of them. Doug has a grand plan to become a famous teacher and infect future generations of educators and students with his philosophy, which will lead to a joyous education renaissance, flying unicorns, and rock and roll for all.

A note to young teachers or teachers to be: You must read this. This book has been my "cheat sheet" despite having worked as coach educator for 18 years. My relationship with kindergarteners has never been better, and my high schoolers have never worked so hard while having so much fun. You must read this book. You must visit his blog and interact with him and his fellow Weird Teachers because it will improve the life of every student you meet. As humorous and fun as this book is, it never forgets our job as educators, and it never stops inspiring.
As a new teacher in the profession, It was refreshing to read a veteran teachers commentary that was not about being under appreciated or telling me we need more time. This book just reminds us that trenches is a horrible reference because our classes are magical and a reflection of who we are. I enjoy his brief insights on multiple situations teachers find themselves in.
Doug remains positive and humorous throughout. I would love to attend staff meetings weekly with this author!
While I'm not a teacher (Reason? Chapter 12 - Bodily Functions. PS. I laughed ridiculously hard. Out loud.), I do think that this book is easily passed from teacher, to parent, and visa versa, to inspire and motivate. I personally will be buying this for my kids' 3rd grade teacher in hopes that it inspires her as much as it did me.
