Meet Mrs. Mimi - she's the second grade teacher every kid should have. Hip and hiilarious, she brings us into her New York City classroom, with no hold barred. From the Great Pencil Crisis of 2003 to ill-fated field trips (lesson #1: don't trust a farm in Queens), Mrs. Mimi has seen it all. Based on her popular blog, It's Not All Flowers and Sausages shows us what it's like to commune with seven-year-olds for a living - pee jokes, annoying colleagues, and all. Join Mrs. Mimi in the teacher's lounge and in her classroom, as she wrangles the naughty kids, outsmarts the sneaky ones, and tries to get everyone to third grade in one piece.
