Now on McSweeneys: As A Superhero Teacher, I Can’t Wait to Sacrifice My Unvaccinated Life for Your Child

Achievement unlocked! I can’t begin to explain how STOKED I was when I got the email from McSweeneys Internet Tendency that they were going to run my latest satire piece about teachers and vaccines.

Getting published on McSweeneys has been a dream of mine. Some writers spend YEARS trying to get published there. Book deals have been made from getting your work on McSweeneys. It can be a game changer for a writer’s career!

As A Superhero Teacher, I Can’t Wait to Sacrifice My Unvaccinated Life for Your Child is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the controversy of sending teachers back to the classroom during a pandemic before they are vaccinated. You can read it here.

For the record, I am a teacher, and am very fortunate to have received my vaccine. However, there are many teachers who still have not. But I’m also a parent who is desperate to send her kids back to school, so I empathize with both sides of the issue.

To all those teachers and parents out there, you are SUPERHEROES.
