This Seemed Like The Worst Parenting EVER. Then I Kept Looking And …Holy Cow!
You don’t normally regard a teacher who explodes pumpkins in class or sets students’ hands on fire as a particularly good one, but the story of Jeffrey Wright and how his personal struggle helped him become a better educator and a better father will make you re-evaluate everything you know about teaching. This guy is my personal hero and the most extraordinary person I’ve seen.
I’ve always thought being a teacher is incredibly hard. Kids aren’t going to connect with you just because you think you’re good at your job. I just wish my teachers were this amazing.
