Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10 by Judy Finchler

As a child, I remember begin very surprised to see my teacher out in public. As a student teacher, I have found to be a surprise to see at the grocery store, at Target, at the skating rink, and downtown. The look on their face and the sound of the words "Mrs.Cullip!" are the same.. they are in absolute shock and quite excited to see me outside of school. These experiences are very well portrayed in today's #BookaDay realistic fiction picture book, Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10 by Judy Finchler.

The story begins as the student discusses why he believes his teacher lives in their classroom, Room 10. He has it all figured out, with specifics including: she eats in the cafeteria, plays in the gym, and sleeps in the teacher's lounge (which is why they do not allow students in there). I could not stop laughing about the student had about his teacher living at his elementary school. Through a turn of events his thoughts change, yet he winds up with a new idea in the end. This is a must read for students, teachers, and anyone who has ever been surprised at seeing their teacher outside of school! I hope that you will enjoy, Miss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10, Judy Finchler celebrating student's comic misunderstandings about the private lives of their teachers.
