Book Synopsis
This heartfelt memoir sparkles with wit and charm. As a former student of Mrs. Haldeman, this memoir feels like her classroom experience. Deeply felt, instructive, and awe-inspiring.
- Roshani Chokski, Author of The Star-Touched Queen, and Aru Shah and the End of Time, and The Gilded Wolves

Carolyn Haldeman has penned a delightful account of her experiences as a classroom teacher. She has struck the right balance between taking your job seriously, but not yourself. She also has made this a better world by her efforts. That is what good teachers do.
- Dick Yarbrough, Syndicated Columnist

If teachers are the finest people in the world, and I think they are, then what they have to say, especially after their years of herding cats, has got to be important. The Misadventures of a Septuagenarian Teacher is a book, but it’s also a message: teaching’s tough but fun and perpetually good for everybody. . . Mrs. Haldeman, with this book, has heartwarmingly proven she knows what she’s talking about … then and now.
- Todd Sentell, Author of Toonamint of Champions and Can’t Wait to Get There. Can’t Wait to Leave

She is an amazing woman! With all of the books on teaching and all of the terms used to describe a good teacher, this is the book that will remind you of the real reason you went into teaching. I am very blessed to have been able to work with this wonderful lady.
