Irish Teen Punished After Refusing To Have Her Culture Exploited In American High School

Moving from one school to another one is always a huge step. It's never fun to be the new kid. What's even harder is moving from one school to another one in a completely different country. Now, not only are you the new kid, but you're the new kid with a new accent and a new culture that you suddenly have to become the representative for.

Americans and foreigners have an interesting relationship. Firstly, a lot of Americans consider everyone to be a foreigner, even when they are living in their own country. Sometimes it can be difficult to move past stereotypes when trying to learn about someone else's background. It is a good thing to celebrate other people's cultures, and ask them questions with an open mind, but we need to understand that sometimes people just don't want to share.

My (16F) family and I recently moved from Dublin, Ireland, to a small town in the South of the United States, a real "Bible Belt" town where it seems they don't get a lot of "foreigners" like myself and my family.

A Primary School Teacher Draws His Teaching Experience In Hilarious Comics

So what goes on on a typical day at primary school you might ask? Well thanks to Colm Cuffe we may now how our answers! Cuffe is a primary school teacher from Galway, Ireland. By day he has the fun task of educating the next generation of kids, by night an artist! Having a particular interest in animation and cartooning, Cuffe decided to combine the two things he's passionate about. Teaching and Drawing. Since September 2016, Cuffe has been working on original works and we have to say, they are hilarious! Taking his own teaching experiences and drawing them out, it's like we were actually there! Lucky for us, he posts weekly on his Facebook page 'Whens it Hometime?' and Twitter page @whensithometime.

Here are just a couple of the many comics:
