Hello and thank you for visiting!

When I was in middle school, my English-teacher-mother told me to write about what I know. These comics are about what I know: what breaks my heart, what cracks me up, what keeps me awake at night. I’m especially interested in the stories we don’t tell, the experiences we find isolating but, when shared, create genuine connections with others.

Before spending my time raising two wild children and making lots of comics, I was a teacher. I remain deeply committed to making education a more compassionate, equitable, and creative experience for all students and their families.  As soon as the wild ones are a bit older, I plan to head back to the classroom.

Also, I used to be Amy Gerber (long story) so if you are looking for her, look no further. Feel free to contact me at amyalethe@gmail dot com.
