He calls himself the teacher from Ferris Bueller's day off — he says he was so boring — that was then. This is now. By sharing his authentic journey, you'll feel empowered and excited to be a better teacher.
Hats off to my friend Lou for his professionalism and authenticity. Today's episode is a heartwarming trip into one man's journey to become a better teacher.
