Our Stories: 24 Deb Gluz

Deb Gluz is a neighbor and friend who has a wonderful sense of humor and happens to be a math teacher. Not just any math teacher, Deb was awarded Teacher of the Year this past April!


And when I say she has a wonderful sense of humor, you should know that she often posts cartoons and funny pictures on her facebook page and in her group Torrington Community so I thought it would be perfect to draw a cartoon in the style of Gary Larson’s Farside and put Debra in it!

To personalize it further, I made sure that one of the characters in it was going to wear a HARTFORD WHALERS jersey. I knew it couldn’t be the teacher, so I had one of the students wear it! All of the dogs are drawn the way Larson draws dogs.




But that’s not all. Did I mention dogs? Debra and her husband Michael are dog lovers. Every day I see them walking their dogs with loving care.  Now truth be told I’m not sure how many dogs they actually HAVE but I took care to place the dogs I recalled and saw in some photos in the back row of the class!

I came up with three options, three varations on what the caption should be.

Vote for which one you like (in a comment or in a comment on facebook)

OR if you have a different caption you think works, share that TOO!
At the end of the day, Deb can select the one she likes best and I’ll put those words on the original!

      1. Thank you Julie! This was a riff on the original by Gary Larson whose Farside cartoon referenced dogs eating their own homework. I consider it an homage but felt it works with Deb’s story!
