If you’ve been following us for a while, you may remember the funny comics from Colm Cuffe, the primary school teacher, and artist from Galway, Ireland. We love reading his weekly comic strip “When’s it Hometime?” on his Facebook page because everyone is worthy of a belly laugh. And I’m sure we can all agree that every teacher could use a solid laugh around this time of year. Enjoy!
