    Did Mrs. Hagerty attend the Asmongold class of streaming because I swear that that was eerily similar to his intro in his streams. lol

    It's a common joke about streamers dunno if it started that way because of asmogold *full body shiver*.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    I don't get that at all. It reads more to me as mildly startled/perplexed, probably at her owner being loudly enthusiastic at nothing.

    They could have topped it by giving the teacher a makeover to look closer to this gentleman:

    I lost my shit at It's ya boy Mrs. Hagerty.

    That might be the funniest social commentary PA has done in a while.

    Unless parents are lesson planning, they aren’t teachers.

    You're not kidding. I took one Educational Psychology course in college and knew it wasn't for me.

    I made it all the way to the front of a classroom before I accepted it wasn't for me. :p

    You could also say that teachers aren't streamers if their "audience" is rage-quitting daily.

    Most parents and teachers today are trying to avoid cascading emotional meltdowns in the kids. Let's shoot for achieving that, and then we can worry about lesson planning.

    I keep wanting to share this comic with friends, but I know most of them will just find it depressingly accurate

    Yes. One day at a time, and every time you get frustrated, just know everyone else is just barely hanging on as well.

    Me too! I didn’t see it coming. I didn’t even know why I hated teaching so much. In retrospect, I think it was just way more work than I was ever going to do.

    Unfortunately, I did see it coming for most of my last year of college. However, when faced with the choices of going off in a new educational direction, or forging forward with the hopes that I would grow to like it, I chose the latter. Oh well. It's been over 20 years at this point and life has turned out ok. I even do some training in a corporate setting, so I ALMOST still do teaching. haha

    I taught for over a year before I was forced to acknowledge that I couldn't control the class (didn't help that many had no interest in math, though even the students who liked math didn't succeed with me teaching). I didn't hate the job though

    What a nice student she must have to have given her a prime sub. Meanwhile I wonder what the cat's staring at?

    I'm pretty sure the cat is staring at her mrs Hagerty. Just because the picture window for the catccam is to her right on-screen, doesn't mean the cat isn't physically located to her left. Actually, the cat could be in any direction from Mrs Hagerty, and still be looking to it's right at her depending on the orientation of the catcam.
