"Desktop publishing has always been fun for me, so that's what I do. But I try to add a few extra touches like stickers or stamps or something to make them a little bit personalized."

"i keep mine, because i'm selfish and get attached to objects. i'm never adverse to lending them out, but it usually comes with a stern (if somewhat facetious) warning "if you lose this you are dead.""

My favorite zine like book...

On Subbing
$4.00 PAPERBACK 128 PGS. •

Dave is a substitute teacher. A substitute teacher who works with special education classes. This book combines four zines representing four years of subbing work. Dave starts out with a glossary of terms to help you better understand the world he is entering. The talent that Dave has for sharing his experience is unbelievable. You really feel that you get to know these kids and are upset when he has to go work in another classroom, but become quickly acquainted with those children. The stories are hilarious, sad, and self-depreciating all at the same time. This book definitely gives one a greater appreciation for teachers and parents working with children who have special needs. It's absolutely a great read and highly recommended.
