Who is Miss Malarkey?

Have you heard of Miss Malarkey?  Miss Malarkey is a character in the book Testing Miss Malarkey.  Her students are getting ready to take a very important test, "The Test," and she is very nervous about it.  

If you are a teacher in a high-stakes testing grade level, I'm sure at some point in time you have thought to yourself "I am Miss Malarkey!"  I know I certainly have.  I read this book to my class today.  We begin our state testing tomorrow, and I thought it would be a fun way to discuss "The Test" and the anxious feelings that comes along with it.  

So who else wants to admit it...who is Miss Malarkey??  


  1. I love Miss Malarkey! I love "Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind"! :) It's so cute!


  2. I love Miss Malarkey too!!! Several years ago I wrote a script based on the book. The teachers peformed it for the students during our assessment "Pep rally". The kids loved it!
