William has been called a “teacher’s teacher”. He thinks deeply about his vocation and believes that teaching is not just his job but his calling. To say he’s passionate about teaching is like saying birds are passionate about flying. That may well be, but it’s what they were born to do. So it is with teaching for William.
William doesn’t mince words about the educational system in America today, the respect teachers deserve or his deep connection and love for his students and what he does. William is looking to change our perspective and generate some positive turbulence in the classroom.
