Even we serious bloggers who try to tackle difficult subjects need a bit of a break.
Many of you know that I am a teacher, and some of my followers are teachers too. I stumbled upon a wonderful blog by a cartoonist/teacher named Matt Gajdoš, AKA Mr. G. He is wonderfully funny and draws about the cute little moments that are found in every school day.
A few days ago, Matt posted this cute comic about the end of the first day of kindergarten. I taught kindergarten for 12 years, so it struck home and made me chuckle. I commented that he should write about the beginning of that first day…which is typically filled with crying kids, crying parents, and repeated requests to go home or eat lunch. It’s a fun-filled, exhausting, zoo of a day.
Well, Matt took on my challenge! I was delighted to see this post in my inbox. Matt tries to capture those first moments in all their chaos and glory! Thanks so much Mr. G.! Surf around his site and check out all of the other great comics.
Even if you’re not a teacher, if you have kids you can relate to this. Welcome to my world, and thanks for joining me along the way.
