Confusing acronyms are a educational policy pet peeve of mine.

Back in college, I’d often draw one-off comics for friends of mine who were graduating or leaving school for some reason. I’ve always wanted to do a few for my teaching colleagues but for the most part, it’s kind of impossible. Teachers make decisions about leaving their positions over the summer months and a lot of times, educators I admire and appreciate will just be gone come August/September. There’s no real chance for goodbyes. In this case, I had ample warning so I wanted to draw a little something up for Jess.

In a lot of ways, the Selena character has a bit of Jess in her, in that she’s a personable math teacher who I’m friendly with outside of my discipline. Like I said in the comic, she will be greatly missed!

It’s true – I work in a cash-poor urban school district. Drive twenty minutes away and you’ll find teachers in tony suburban schools who make at least $10,000 dollars over my salary, simply by virtue of the school district where they teach. Why am I still in my district, you ask? I’ll address that in tomorrow’s comic…

I’d ask those in the know as to the differences between literature circles and socratic seminars bear with me over the next few weeks of comics. I’ll be making the distinctions between the two pretty clear, but this seems to be an all-puropse way of explaining the practices to the unfamiliar.

This is a thing my ST complained about quite a few times. I can’t remember it being much a problem for me when I was coming up, but many of my colleagues confirmed that yes, it took awhile for them to modulate the tone and pitch of their voices for the classroom. It makes sense, when you think about it. Most theatrical performers have to get quality vocal training.
