    reminds me of the time when I was in 9yh grade and got a call to babysit for my former 4th grade teacher. She met me at the door in a formal dress.On the walls of her staircase, there were photos of her playing harp and engaging in RL. I was flabbergasted. It’s the first time I really thought of a teacher as a real person.

    I am impressed that Maria and Joey can remain upright given the size of those backpacks. If someone were to poke them in the forehead they’d topple over like a turtle on its back.

    Yes, they can have social lives too.

    Bearing in mind that it’s a comic strip, and their bodies are not realistically drawn in proportion to their heads…

    I remember this exchange between students: “Teacher’s pet!” “So does everybody else!”

    Interesting! In my neighborhood this sort of vocabulary and thought would have been foreign. Our teachers were rather aloof since there was absolutely no pressure to teach. So there were no teachers’ favorites. For that other idea they had other, more crude terms of expression.
