"Louis, the Yard Teacher"

By Jody Williams
1     Louis, the yard teacher, frowned.
 
2     The school yard was a mess. There were pencils and pieces of paper everywhere. How'd all this junk get here? he wondered. Well, I'm not going to pick it up!
 
3     It wasn't his job to pick up garbage. He was just supposed to pass out the balls during lunch and recess, and also make sure the kids didn't kill each other.
 
4     He sighed, then began cleaning it up. He loved all the children at Wayside School. He didn't want them playing on a dirty playground.

 
5     Wayside School is Falling Down is just one book in the popular Wayside School series. "Louis, the Yard Teacher" is one of the characters. The character is based on the author. Louis Sachar, at one time, was known as "Louis, the Yard Teacher." Usually, Louis Sachar does not like to use his own experiences in his books. This experience was too good to let it pass by.
