Nathan Fisher, the Connecticut teacher pushed out of his job last year after giving a copy of Eightball #22 to a ninth-grader, is still teaching — just not at Guilford High School.
Rick Green of the Hartford Courant updates Fisher’s story, noting that the educator landed at Coginchaug Regional High School in Durham, Conn., where he’s happily teaching English and journalism, and serving as adviser to the online student newspaper.
“It feels like a family,” Fisher told him. “It’s like they say. It’s the hardest job you will ever love.”
Fisher resigned from Guilford High School in September 2007 after complaints that he gave the Daniel Clowes comic to a student as a reading assignment. A police investigation found that no criminal charges were necessary.
