Ms. Wiz Spells Trouble by Terence Blacker

St. Barnabas has some strange teachers. Yet none of them can get Class Three 's Disruptive Element under control. Enter Miss Wisdom, better known as Ms. Wiz. She is the strangest of them all with her jeans , black nail polish and her pet rat. The kids in Class Three quickly figure out that Ms. Wiz is more than just a teacher, she is a witch - actually a Paranormal Operative. She casts spells that only help, never hurt. The magic is a secret only known to those of the class. The other teachers are extremely suspicious of her since she is the only teacher to ever control Class Three. Several teachers start spying on her and do everything in their power to get her fired. Ms. Wiz tells her students not to worry, she will visit each of them again (a promise of a fairly lengthy series), whenever her magic is needed. A fun series from a British author so there will be some British terms, but nothing to foreign. A book to be enjoyed by beginning chapter book readers.
