Teachers don't really live in their classrooms, do they? May 20, 2008
This is a delightful story that dispels a common myth among young children - that their teacher really doesn't live at school. The story opens by describing what the narrator thinks about his teacher, Miss Malarkey's, life after the school day ends. The narrator believes that Miss Malarkey grades papers and prepares for the next day in her classroom while wearing pajamas, eats dinner in the cafeteria and sits at the best table, then goes to sleep in the teacher's room. These ideas are dispelled, however, when Miss Malarkey moves into the narrator's apartment building. The narrator sees that Miss Malarkey walks around her apartment barefoot, takes out the garbage, and even throws parties and dinners. The narrator tries to convince his classmates of this; however they still believe Miss Malarkey lives at school. The book ends with the narrator discussing his future second grade teacher, Mrs. Boba, who the narrator is sure lives at school. This book is a great book for early grades because many students do believe that their teachers live in the school building and do not have other roles besides that of teacher. A book like this one, teaches students that teachers are real people just like anyone else and consequently can help students relate to their teacher better.

I dont think parents realize some of the conceptions children have about their teachers. This book just lets us realize one of them. It was well written.

This book is a fiction book. The title of this book is Miss malarkey Livesin Room 10. The author of this book is Judy Finchler. In this book the main characters are Miss malarkey and the kids.

Next they say that the teachers sleep in the teachers room. Lastly there teacher moves into one of the kids apartments...You must read the book to find out what happens next.
I like this book because it was pretty funny. I would recommend this book to people who like funny books about teachers living at school.
a great book Nov 19, 2002
...All of the kids in room 10 think that all of the teachers live in the school. Until one day, their teacher moves into to the same apartment building as one of the students. The student tries to prove to some of the students that the teachers don't really live at the school, and he does. I think this is a great book and I hope that you get to read it some day too...
Teachers do live at school, don't they? Oct 20, 2002
Whenever my students see my outside of the school setting, they are always shocked. This book is about a boy was sure all the teachers lived at school, ate dinner in the cafeteria, slept in the lounge, etc., until his teacher moves in to his apartment building. Oh no!! He not only sees her carrying out garbage, but sees her wearing sandals that reveal she has TOES!! This is cute for kids (who still may persist in believing teachers live at school), and it would be an ideal gift for the soon-to-be-teacher. Funny text and pictures make this a winner for 6-8 year olds.
