    I don’t know… grading CAN be a soul-crushing experience.

    I have figured out why I am having a problem with this strip the characters have no expressions they are walking around like zombies

    I have a funny feeling this is very true of what goes through the minds of a lot of teachers.

    Grading is a hard part of being a teacher. Do you grade on what they’ve learned to get along in life, or do you grade on what they’ve been taught just to pass a test?

    A professor chum of mine once told me he graded on the “stair” plan. He’d toss the papers down the stairs, and the ones that landed on one step got As, another step Bs and so on… ;-D

    Having taught for many years, I have found that the greatest thing in life is the occasional young adult who seeks you out and tells you something that you did for him/her, or something you said, that they will never forget.

    I might have made a difference in .01 of one percent of my students’ lives. But it’s okay. I got a chance to make a difference.

    Vanishing pupils! I wish I could do that with my eyes. It would really freak people out.

    The misting of her glasses as she lapses into an acknowledgement of her existential dread and impotence. Not so much “ha-ha funny” as “yikes, put down the straight razor, teacher!”

    I like how the artist represents a character’s momentary retreat into a mental reverie.

    If you teach, as a job or as a volunteer, and ‘feel powerless to change their path’, get out of there now because you will NOT make a change. That is THE JOB of a teacher, and you will have failed at it.

    This hit it outta the park. Dark, introspective humor at its piercing best. Is it NANCY? Not necessarily, but it sure hit a strong note. =)

    I hate how the “featured comment” is whatever got the most replies so inevitably somebody who says something awful and/or insane and has 18 people arguing in their replies is at the top

    Perhaps this should be moved to the Political section?
