Where did I see this man? Did PBS spotlight him? Or HBO? He is amazing! So many gifts in this world and a few quirks stop many people from not appreciating these gift givers! He is remarkable.

I taught alternate class with kids 17 to 20. The idea was to keep them in school - different experience - teaching computers and English. The basic idea was to encourage completion of their work and to prasie their efforts so more successive efforts will follow.

with their English, I taught poetry, for them to write their own poem, and they had to type their poem , handing in both their hand writting and the computer typed version - once they saw the difference that just typing their assignements would get them a higher mark because the teacher could read their work, their started working more - even started getting fancy, underlining work, adding colour etc.

Unique kids to teach, and what you learned at university as to how to teach them, is usually thrown out the window, you have to read the group, see their behaviour patterns, teach to get positive results and try to improve their self-esteem - complicated but rewarding.
