My name is Maureen Bakis. I am high school English teacher in Massachusetts where I teach a course called The Graphic Novel to 12th graders. I created this site and The Graphic Novel Classroom: Powerful Teaching & Learning with Images (2011) to help anyone who is interested in teaching graphic novels.  

Please contact me through this site if you are interested in a graphic novel professional development program for your school, library, or club. I can tailor a workshop face to face or online to meet your needs!
