Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind, Thoughts on Teacherhood, by Phillip Done

Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind: Thoughts on TeacherhoodI’m extremely fond of what I think of as “job books” (memoirs that are based on the writer’s professional experiences in a career, like a book by a veterinarian about his or her practice, or books about being a cop by a cop). I particularly like humorous stories and this book definitely fits the bill. Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind is by a teacher about his experiences as a teacher, and I liked it a great deal. Done is a funny and engaging writer and his stories are the right combination of funny and heartwarming without being overly sweet or corny. (Memoirs balance out my passion for science fiction and fantasy novels.)
