Here’s a cool thing: Ohio Schools Magazine reprinted the piece NPR did about my comic in their February issue. If you’re an Ohio teacher, you probably have something about me in your mailbox as you read this! Take a moment to peruse while you comb through your Publishers’ Clearinghouse sweepstakes and chinese restaurant coupons.
…for serious though, it’s a very cool thing and the magazine has a circulation of over 120,000. I’m pumped.
…and then that kid comes to school with no coat and I have to teach them about gerunds and Langston Hughes.
People who ignore poverty as the most major factor in student success probably aren’t thinking about students in my district who don’t have warm parkas when the temperature dips below freezing.
I reference a fun, outside the box “party” summative project I do with my 9th graders in this comic based around the novel Code Name Verity… and here are some comics about that project.
I draw a picture of myself on my classroom’s chalkboard everyday. I collect those pictures as camera phone photos and post them on Sundays. See the rest here.

I’m not a principal, but I was sent in the capacity of “lead teacher” which was a nice thing for my district to do.
