A Reminder of Why I Teach

Sometime I listen to a podcast called Snap Judgement hosted by Glynn Washington on NPR. The show melds fascinating stories with a hip-hop  backdrop. NPR_ Snap Judgment Podcast

Last week I listened to a story by Joyce Lee called “Dropping The Ball” about her experience with a former student. It gave me pause and reminded me of why I teach, why it’s important for me to be a good father. And most of all, why it’s important to listen.

Take a listen and enjoy the show.
