Question by Bluey: Name of short story about an unconventional teacher?
She appears as a substitute one day. Teaches kids weird things such as 2+2 isn’t necessarily 4, the pyramids have mystic powers, and that women can enchant men but not the other way around. And one day she is gone because she is fired. The protagonist is a student that is intrigued with her and wonders where she went. The other students were like “she’s nuts.”
I thought the name of the story was “The Griffin” or something, but I couldn’t find it under that.
Answer by charming
“Gryphon” by Charles Baxter. The substitute teacher is Miss Ferenczi.
