The Kids! They make me laugh! They have no filter, and they always come up with an observation you would never hear from an adult.

Meet Matt Gajdoš. I love this teachers' art, especially the expressions Matt captures. As a mother of nine kids, his cartoons ring true; they truly are written by the kids he teaches. I mean no adult could possible come up with half of his material. Only a listening, caring man with a hilarious sense of humour and a unique talent can create Mister G. kids! Listen to his introduction of himself because he will snag your interest with the very first sentence:

I’ve had the pleasure of spending the last six years teaching elementary kids, big and small, as a substitute teacher. People ask me why I sub. Sure, there are occasional headaches and sometimes it can be stressful. But the reason I do it is simple:The Kids! They make me laugh! They have no filter, and they always come up with an observation you would never hear from an adult. That’s why I get up every morning and go back for more, even if they do wipe me out sometimes.

And I make a comic about it! Mister G kids is a daily webcomic that updates at midnight Greenwich Mean Time. Who writes the jokes? The kids! I have collected years worth of authentic quotes from real students – incidental, off-handed throwaways to them, but to me they are gems –

Matt has been blogging for a year now which adds up to

12 months
242 posts
453 hours of Spotify
274 kilowatt-hours of air conditioning
1 Staples and 1 Pearl Paints
2 inches of work
His blogging experience has been encouraging and energizing for his work as he has met other artists and cartoonists who simply love to draw.

About the Writer

My husband and I raised 9 children on a hobby farm and discovered fulfilment and joy.The very existence of a joyful mother of nine children seems to confound people. My writing is humourous and heart warming/ thoughtful and thought provoking with a strong current of spirituality running through it.
