Read full description of the books The Trouble with Miss Switch:
Rupert Brown can tell from day one that Miss Switch is no ordinary fifth-grade teacher. Her whole look is about as comfortable as a steel knitting needle! Plus, she's in some serious trouble.
It seems that Miss Switch has been condemned by a crazy contraption called a computowitch, and she must come up with some original witchcraft or she will be doomed to sweep Witch's Mountain for l50 years.
Can great scientist Rupert Brown and his friend Amelia Daley face the computowitch and the Witches' Council and get their favorite teacher of all time out of this mess?

She is a UCLA graduate.
