About

Hello Kickstarter Community and my 180Dayz fans, please help me launch volume 1 of a "Graphic Take on Teaching," which will showcase 20 different educators real stories from the classrooms and the comic strips inspired by them. Please read below for the details behind the purpose and scope of this project, and if you like, support! Thanks!

Teaching is no funny business, but anyone with experience in education knows that it can be hilarious! 180 Dayz (www.180dayz.com) has been the source for comics about teaching and education, and now is embarking on a very important mission. These days there is more pressure on teachers than ever, and more and more educators are leaving the profession before they even had a chance to develop their craft and have a truly dynamic impact on their students. While there have been innumerous "new teacher" books published, this project is different. It will utilize real 1st year teacher stories shared by veteran educators, purposed to help novice teachers learn from their mishaps and avoid common mistakes of a the profession. Each narrative is accompanied by a full color comic inspired by the teacher's story. The finished work is sure to not only inspire and educate the reader but also tickle their funny bone as well. Together, let's help improve the field of education by providing an entertaining yet insightful read full of applicable lessons for our new teachers; which in turn will ensure better schools and learning experiences for our children. 

Risks and challenges

This is to be the first volume of what could develop into a series if successful. I have all the stories collected and edited, and nearly all the artwork completed for the comicstrips. I have already begun researching publishing costs which helped me set my goal. I am only doing a small printing of paperback books as of now to keep the funding goal down, so I suppose a risk would be selling out too fast, but that would be a good thing, right? Hey, if we make our funding goal then we can look forward to some stretch goals, such as hardcover book, more stories, full feature length film... hmmm... the possibilities... the possibilities....
