that's what queue said

Take a minute of your day to think about teacher Combeferre
  • Combeferre is at a crossroad in his studies and has to choose between being a biologist or teaching biology and he’s SO.TORN because SCIENCE but also EDUCATION
  • He ends up choosing education because it’s a good compromise. He knows the salary won’t be the same at all, but that’s not what he’s after
  • He’s a very organised person so he managed to organise his classes, make a time table, projects… He aces his education classes, but that’s just theory
  • Ferre is actually terrified to go on the field because kids can be mean and unpredictible, but he powers through
  • He ends up teaching biology in middle school. He loves it
  • He makes science fun and interesting. He makes cool models. He tries to show that science can be cool
  • Bless his heart, he sometimes gets SO INTO IT he rants and nerds out and he’s rambling for like 10 minutes about the dinosaurs and a rad fossil he found when he was 6
  • He organizes science fairs and everybody calls them “Science Ferre”
  • He’s also in charge of teaching sex ed and oh my god. He makes it as inclusive as possible, from contraception to LBGTQIA+ informations because he never had that and kids need that
  • Of course, some bigoted parents got ~concerned~ and Combeferre had to talk with them and the principal. Combeferre took out the official papers from the National Education system and read out loud:
  • “The teacher should strive against stereotypes and any kind of discrimination and provide for the educational needs of the students and adapting his teaching methods to these needs. Now shall I get some magnifying glasses from the lab or can you read it for yourself?”
