I Wish I Had An Teacher Like This...

I was visiting one of my favorite comics sites; Robot 6, when I stumbled upon their newest "Shelf Porn" (in which yours truly was once prominently featured) entry; a NYC teacher who has amassed an impressive graphic novel collection for his students to enjoy as well as improve their reading skills. Intrigued, I visited the provided link for the teacher; Chris Pearce. Turns out that Chris is a cartoonist as well as a high school English teacher, and keeps an online comic strip journal based on his adventures in education; "Teachable Moments", which is both amusing as well as enlightening.

As a father who is married to a teacher, it is refreshing and inspiring to see teachers who are so genuinely interested and invested in the education of their students. Speaking as a former student in the Alabama public school system who had very few inspiring teachers, Chris truly is the real deal. Keep up the good work, Chris!
