Miss Nelson is Missing

What a great book to compliment Gil’s latest Heritage2Legacy podcast, My Favorite First (Controlling) Teacher.  If you haven’t met Miss Nelson and/or Viola Swamp then let me be the first to introduce you to them both.    And don’t forget to listen to our August H2L podcast HERE!

We have moved our Heritage 2 Legacy posts and podcasts to its very own website.

Summary

A classroom of unruly students treat their caring and lovely teacher with complete disrespect. They throw spit balls during story-time and refuse to sit in their seats during math. They take advantage of their teacher’s good nature until she disappears and they are faced with a vile substitute. Near her wits’ end, Miss Nelson doesn’t come to school one day.

By the time Miss Nelson finally returns, the children are so grateful they behave well. But now Viola Swamp is missing…
