Up The Down Staircase by Bel Kaufman

Sylvia Barrett is the new English teacher at Calvin Coolidge High School in New York City. She befriends a more experienced teacher named Beatrice “Bea” Schachter, who shows Sylvia the ropes.She is then introduced to her class of insolent, but somewhat bright students. While trying to teach a lesson, she meets Paul Barringer, an unpublished writer and hunk of the English Department. Sylvia has to overcome different obstacles of teaching, including dealing with bad boy Joe Ferone, the suicide of head-over-heels student Alice Blake, among other problems. Things start to change when she decides to leave and realizes that her students have become very fond of her.
