I wanted to do some kind of comic to balance the last two (TOTALLY, 100% TRUE) strips. I think it’s important to remember that there are fantastic administrators out there, doing everything they can to make schools places that teachers and students can flourish. For the record,┬ámy school’s principal is, bar none, the best administrator I’ve ever worked for.

My student teacher did an indirect characterization lesson last year, which made me realize I’ve never done a comic about how I teach characterization.

It helps that most students have never seen The Royal Tenenbaums. I would assume if you have students who have seen that movie, it might skew the activity a bit.

Normally if I’m telling a little extended story, I’ll try to write them in such a way that I can parse them out over the course of the week. I couldn’t make that schedule fit for this.

The only other thing I want to say is this young person, with just a couple of kind words, reaffirmed my belief in being an educator right at a time when I was at my lowest in regards to this profession. I love being a teacher, but the bureaucracy is killing me. Thanks to this young man, wherever he is.
