Taught inner city students, Special Needs students, artists, and charter school students in grades 6, 8, 9, 10 and 11. This is currently my 4th year as a teacher.
I make kids see beauty in the mundane. I get them jumping out of their seats to refute an argument that I've written on the board. I turn children into adults I make them think and make them like it. I open minds and I rouse rabbles. I empower the powerless. I build tomorrows out of todays and yesterdays. I instigate revolution. I teach the art of communication to young artists.
