Mrs. Baker from The Wednesday Wars definitely deserves a place on our list of 100+ Cool Teachers in Children's Literature. What a great teacher--someone who helps students find out who it is that they are. I LOVED her! She may be one of my favorite teachers of all time.
And I LOVED the book--definitely deserving of the Newbery Honor that it received last week.
With all of the new books that have come out recently, let us know if you know of any more recent teacher characters that belong on our list!
