Maureen Miller has published part of a novel about a young teacher, titled "Suffer the Children," and it's being serialized this week at a site called Five Chapters: Monday: Part One; Tuesday: Part Two; Wednesday: Part Three.
According to the written intro, this is "the opening section of an unfinished metafictional novel meant to be a corrective to inner city teacher-hero narratives."
Specifically, it's about a first-year teacher "who finally wins the respect of her students when she becomes Internet-famous for lashing out toward them and herself in her songs for her indie rock side project."
Interesting, right? The piece was apparently inspired by an MTV news article on Vampire Weekend frontman and former teacher. [Not to be confused with the TFA alum in Sleigh Bells who appeared on SNL.] Miller also writes that "It's partly based on meeting Andy rotherham in a Charlottesville chipotle after he saw my TFA shirt."
I can't vouch for it, not having read it yet, but I like the idea, and so am inclined at least to be curious. I met Miller a few years ago via email through Robert Pondiscio, when I was looking for America's Next Great Edu-Blogger. A couple of years later, I emailed her about a 2007 blog post she'd written at Blog and Deliver about how Stephen Colbert would have made a great TFAer.
Anyway, you can see some of her other writing here. She's got a very impressive bio here. She's also written a couple of articles for The Atlantic.com. @myopinion is her Twitter handle. According to the bio, Miller is currently completing a memoir of her year with TFA, titled THE BIG MO. An annotated version is also up on Rap Genius, where Miller goes by the name MoMilli (Suffer the Children).
