You sound like an excellent teacher. You enjoy your students, instead of thinking of them as problems. I had a few teachers like you. I still remember them. The others I’ve forgotten.

That might be the best thing ever said to me. *cries* I am going to tweet this. Wow! Thank you!

Love them, there’s nothing to forgive – that was your job! 😉 So precious! Can never underestimate how much every little action/word can impact on someone’s life. Including the remorse of a child and how it can touch a cynical adults heart.
Ha the apologies may be simple, but don’t anyone tell me any child is born innocent 😉 The first one is only regretting you had to pull him up lol.
Love how you’ve drawn and written these too. The anonymous shadows are great!

You give the best comments.
Thanks – it’s always a concern of mine to protect the kids’ identities, so I thought this was a fun way to do that.
Thank you again, 🙂 ❤

My pleasure! Thank you, just trying to share some goodness with the world!

I was very impressed by the ‘should have’… excellent. I’ve only just got that right!

I love that he contrasts the wrong thing with the right thing, to affirm that they are indeed opposites. so neat!

I love your comics. I’m going to share them with my wife. She is a teacher. After our daughter was born she stopped working full time, but she subs now that I’m home during the day. She occasionally brings home notes like these after she’s had a particularly interesting class and then teaches at the same school again. Children write some great notes.
Yesterday Kathy came home with a story about a kid who got back from the eye doctor, I made a comic out of it. Maybe I should become a teacher, looks like there is plenty of comic material in it!

so much material! if you are listening for it. i notice some teachers seem immune to the cuteness – how can you not hear their little awesome voices of truth and observation?
where can i see your comic?

Right now its on my facebook page, http://on.fb.me/123Pys4 I think that will get you there. I do comic postings on my blog on Mondays, usually have 5 that I post. This eye one will go up a week from this Monday, but this link will take you to it directly.
I’m tuning myself to watch for comedic material with my daughter, she’s almost one. She’s inspired some good comics so far. Thanks!

I always tell them that: “I forgive you,” when they write those sweet notes. I don’t know what the gym teacher said when one of my students wrote an apology note that reads as follows: “I am sorry for telling you to go suck one.”

HAHAHA! That reminds me of Louis C.K., who has a great bit about being told to suck a bag of (those).

I hate children, they are sociopathic evil creatures
September 9th, 2013 at 10:57 pm
and then they become sociopathic evil adults! Childhood is when we can best prevent that, so that’s one of the reasons I teach

wha i hate even more than children are adults who act like them because they stil think they can get what they want in life by lying scheming screaming and bullying
September 9th, 2013 at 10:59 pm
hmm, there are adult babies and babified adults. it’s ok to be immature, but not a bully. i wish adults would be nice to each other. if everyone could do just that one thing they learned in kindergarten…be nice to your neighbor

These are adorable! I love the one that confesses to “beaning silly and folish”. That is an excellent description.
