    Teaching can be frustrating AND rewarding

    WOW! These cartoons are funny and have an underlying truth to them. I put a few of the cartoons on my bulletin board. Now teachers come into my class to grab a laugh.

    Lighter Side of Teaching

    This is a very funny collection of on-target cartoons about the teaching profession, from one who has been there. You will recognize the settings but the author has mined humor from each situation in a very creative and funny way. This is a whole new take on experiences that you may have felt were without humor. The cartoonist - author corrects that impression, page after page, with humor drawn from experience and drawn with a professional artistic style. I discovered creative levity between the covers of this book.

    Lighter Side of Teaching

    If you want to be a good and happy teacher you have to learn to laugh, and the cartoons in this book will show you why. These are well-drawn cartoons useful for school bulletin boards, newsletters and meetings and as ice-breakers too. The cartoons represent a humorous twist on familiar teaching situations.
