Hey class! I’m Ms. Mojo Rose, and I create teacher comics. I first started getting ideas for my comic strips when I was earning my credential in 2013. I imagined kids chanting songs about my bad lesson plans and twerking during flag salute. I was, very clearly, sleep-deprived.

The sleep never really came back to me, but more comic ideas did. After a post blew up on Reddit, I created an official “Summers Off” Instagram and dedicated my time to growing it into one of the top teacher comics online today. To my surprise, not only could teachers relate, but parents and students could as well.

So now, I present you with 76 of my comics that helped me stay sane as I navigated through the triumphs, heartbreaks, and headaches of teaching elementary school children.

I can't relate but it does feel more awkward when you are taller/same height as a teacher and yell at them.

As a teacher of 10 years, I can vouch for it. You don't have time to read the latest approaches, strategies, ideas, etc during term time. Holidays give you a chance to read and plan with minimal interruptions.

I don't know whether he is lying or not but I am going to say this anyway: I feel like we all did something like this when we were little and still in school, like saying something like "My dad was sick so I had to take care of him cuz my mom was at work etc.etc." to make the teacher feel bad for you.
