About this product
- DescriptionJack Woodson was a thermal design engineer for four years until he was laid off from his job. Now, as a teacher, he faces new challenges. Conference calls have been replaced with parent conferences. Product testing has given way to standardized testing. Instead of business cards, Jack w passes out report cards. The only thing that hasn't changed ticeably is the maturity level of the people surrounding him all day. Learn Me Good is a hilarious first-person account, inspired by real life experiences. Through a series of emails to Fred Bommerson, his buddy who still works at Heat Pumps Unlimited, Jack chronicles a year-in-the-life of a brand new teacher. With subject lines such as Irritable Vowel Syndrome, In math class, one can hear you scream, and I love the smell of Lysol in the morning, Jack writes each email with a dash of sarcasm and plenty of irreverent wit.
- Author BiographyJohn Pearson was born just outside of Washington, DC, but moved to Texas as quickly as he could. Growing up with a passion for science, math, and calculator watches, he obtained engineering degrees and basketball (watching) accolades from Duke University and Texas A&M. His first job out of college was designing small solid-state heat pumps, where his cubicle simply was not big enough to contain him. When the engineering market went sour, he decided to try his hand as a teacher, and he has been a 3rd grade math teacher ever since. When he's not teaching, he's reading, blogging, or making YouTube videos like Darth Vader Explains the Pythagorean Theorem. Learn Me Good was born of the baptism-by-fire nature of Pearson's first year as a teacher.
