Hyde and Shriek by David Lubar

Ms. Clevis loves her job as a science teacher but one day she accidentally puts a strange mix of ingredients into her smoothie and things start to go awry for her.  One minute she's super nasty Ms. Hyde, a teacher who delights in making the lives of her students miserable, even driving them to the dump miles away and making them walk back without shoes.  The next minute she becomes sweet elementary school student Jackie helping out everyone around her.  The good and bad sides of Ms. Clevis are splitting apart and she needs to find a way to get them back together and become herself again.  This is a silly book but fun for lower readers or those just looking for something not too heavy.
