Illustration Friday: “Teacher”

We all had a favorite teacher, yes? They did really neat, cool things that we remember well after our school days. My most “cool” teacher was when I was in third grade. He taught us to knit, make bread, sprechen Deutsch (as well as sing Bach Fugues in German!), tumble, and make lye soap. And that’s also the first time I did a comic strip–and fell in love with cartooning. His name wasn’t Mr. McCool, but it may as well have been.

Having taught classroom myself for a number of years, I know how hard the job is. So godspeed to all you teachers out there, prepping for the new year!

    I had that same “cool” teacher! Learned a lot and made lots of good memories in his class!

    Jane: Ha ha! He really stood out, didn’t he? He didn’t teach us to sew, but he sewed some really bright clothes for his self, yes? Thanks for adding your comment!

    Ms Boyd in grade 4 was my favourite teacher. Really cute, Paula!

    Hey Gary! It’s good to look fondly back on teachers who have impacted us. I hope I had that effect with one or two myself! Thanks for your comment!
