(and enjoy your summer) Mannie Reply Kevin Levin June 15, 2007, 6:44 am Hey Mannie, — Yep, he seems like a pretty cool dude. Reply matthew mckeon June 15, 2007, 4:33 pm Our principal played an audio tape of this speech for the faculty during a meeting. My colleagues and I thought of additional lines to enhance its meaning. “I make your child die a little by sarcastically belittling his attempts to answer. I make 18 years old men, old enough to vote, old enough to die in war, ask for permission to go to the bathroom. And sometimes I say no. But most of all, I make happy hour after school everyday.” Ah..good times. Reply robpom June 15, 2007, 11:11 pm Kevin – I have been on the fence about becoming a teacher. I am 36 and just quit my high paying job to go back to graduate school in history. This video inspired me and I really think I may have found my path I have been searching for. Reply Kevin Levin June 16, 2007, 6:59 am Hi Rob, — Now you are MY HERO! A year ago my brother was in a similar position and he did the exact same thing. He absolutely loves being back in school studying history and preparing to become a teacher. Good luck with your move. Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
