My Gram was everything I wanted to be as a person — She was my hero. And she would still come to rock out at my shows. On behalf of her 14 grandchildren of whom I am the eldest I wrote a eulogy to celebrate her amazing life.
Synopsis[ edit ] Big Nate follows the adventures and misadventures of Nate Wright, a spirited and rebellious sixth-graderalong with his classmates and teachers at Public School 38, and other people and animals in the fictional town of Rackleff, Maine.
He is portrayed as a boy with little interest in studies or conforming to standards. The lack of interest leads him into several conflicts with his social studies teacher Mrs.
Godfrey, who he considers his nemesis. Peirce also focuses on Nate's home life and friendships with his best friends, Francis and Teddy.
Answering questions from fans in the Washington Post Peirce revealed the following about the creation of the strip: Big Nate started out as more of a "domestic humor" strip than it is now.
It was my intention to feature a lot of stories about Nate's single dad, and all the comic possibilities inherent in that. But before too long, I realized that the part of the strip that I enjoyed most was the school humor.
I'd been a teacher myself, and schools can be very funny places. Characters[ edit ] This section may contain an excessive amount of intricate detail that may interest only a particular audience.
