I went on about this topic for an extra day beyond what I normally draw in my weekly comics, but I’ll end this with one final thing I try to do to avoid burning myself out at school: AVOID NEGATIVE PEOPLE. I have a feeling I’ll do some comics about that somewhere down the line but I thought it was best said here as well. Some faculty have the uncanny ability to be negative about EVERYTHING and that can rub off on a person if they aren’t careful. EDIT: Heck, some commenters even have that negative thing goin’ for themselves!

I felt like I needed to deal with this myth in the final panel. I think most people have had at least one teacher who was cashing a paycheck and not contributing too much during their time at school. I had one… but again, let me stress that number: ONE.

One is probably far too many when you get down to it. I’ll not defend an educator who has abdicated their responsibilities. That being said, I’ve always found it funny when people frame attacks on teachers around this tiny minority within a majority of hard-working educators who’d sooner quit teaching than do intellectual harm to students.

I thought this series would be a bit of a downer to start with in a new semester, but I think it came out rather decently and it deals with issues that have been on the forefront of my mind for quite awhile. Hopefully I’ll do them justice.

…but yes, new semester! Woo!
