In Honor of Teacher Appreciation Week

Here are some magazine articles I wrote about teachers who made a difference in my life.

  1. Me and Mr. Jones (about a 7th grade computing teacher who made me feel powerful)
  2. “Social” Studies (about the two gentlemen responsible for my social activism)
  3. Walking Among Giants (about a late great singer & my junior high music teacher)
  4. A School Story (about collaboration with my high school jazz teacher)

My most recent TED Talk for a high school audience, Care Less, also tells the tale of key mentors in my life.
