It’s almost Teacher Appreciation Week (5/3-5/7), and what better way to celebrate than sharing stories about those teachers who blew our minds when WE were students? Now, to clarify here, we’re not just seeking stories about any teacher. No, these are the ones who were the most intense, passionate, and . . . dare I say . . . a little wacky in their teaching methodologies! For instance, maybe you had a humanities teacher who leapt around the classroom in character as Othello while he murders Desdemona. Or perhaps there was a chemistry teacher who made students do an interpretive dance throughout the lab to teach the concept of valence electrons. These are the ones we want to hear about! And, to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we’ll be giving away $10 iTunes gift cards to 20 lucky story-tellers. So let’s hear yours! Deadline is May 7 at midnight PDT.
