Set in diary form, Miss, What Does Incomprehensible Mean? is a funny, life-affirming memoir set in the manic world of a busy teacher. Fran Hill's account of one typical year shows it's not just the pupils who misbehave.

English teacher 'Miss' starts the Autumn term beleaguered by self-doubts. She's mid-menopause, insomniac, and Mirror and Bathroom Scales are blisteringly unsympathetic. Her pupils make her laugh, weep, fume and despair, often in the same lesson. Her unremitting workload blights family time and she feels guilty for missing church events to catch up on marking. After all, God-lady is watching.

Whether you work in education, have teenage children or simply want to know what it's really like to be a teacher in today's world, this book is sure to give you an insight into an often-misunderstood role.
