About

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. The book 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, with each narrative accompanied by a beautifully illustrated comic inspired from their experience. The book 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

I have already begun collecting stories, writing narratives, and creating comics for this project, and it is well under way.
They only risk I currently face is be able to collect enough stories for the book, but this is where you can help!
If you or someone you know has a 1st year (or so) teacher story you think a novice teacher can learn from, and you want it to be part of this project, send it to: 180dayzcomics@gmail.com
