The Coolest Language Arts Teacher in Junior High
At the risk of geeking out let me explain what seeing a QR on the syllabus meant to me. It meant that this teacher not only was a techie like my monkey but that he really wanted his students to communicate with. Here is a teacher who gives out his cell phone, Facebook, Google +, and twitter account. If you can't contact this teacher you aren't trying. In a world that is going digital, I think having a plugged in teacher will serve these kids more than anyone can possibly imagine. The internet is changing the world as profoundly as the printing press did. And this teacher is moving at the speed of progress. He is in the head space of his kids and that makes his impact on them tremendous. As a mom I want my kids to have the best education and to be the best they can be. This guys makes me feel like he is on that path with me.
