Joey Chernila

Joey Chernila grew up in a library and has hardly gone a day in his life without a picture book to read. Somewhere along the way, comic books got involved and now it’s a mess of tiny books, zines, comics strips, drawings, rubber stamps, collage and jokes that aren’t very funny. Unfortunately for his students, Joey still tells jokes and reads books daily in his classroom at the Montessori School of the Berkshires, where he has been a primary teacher for 12 years. If you have a story to share, Joey is all ears.
