You have to have crappy teachers to know when to spot the good ones. I am ever thankful that 99.9% of my teachers were good, for me. They reinforced my love of learning. Here’s a snapshot.

Mr. Cardwell

English & Drivers’ Ed. Notable lessons: The Masses are Asses (lesson from reading Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar). Poetry should be read aloud. Mind that lead foot.

Mr. Schmedicke

English. Notable lessons: Most of the students in my class, he told my mother at a parent teacher conference, were bumps on a log, but I asked questions. It reinforced my belief, desire, and need to ask questions and constantly question the teacher.

Mr. Joseph Jones

IAH 201 (MSU for Integrated Arts & Humanities, aka social science). Notable lessons: Many. Teacher for life, always willing to coach, answer questions, and embark in philosophical conversations. Doesn’t mind being questioned, although he puts up a fight.

Mr. Carlton

Algebra, Computers. Notable lessons: PowerPoint! This is where I learned to use PowerPoint on Windows 95, the Teachers (advanced from public release) Edition. You can tell a true mathematician because they look for the shortest route between point A and point B.

Mrs. Dewey

Art & Art History. Notable lessons: Introduction to slides shows… the survey of all survey classes. Pointillism. Rendering. Art museums. Love, art. Rendering shapes is even cooler.

Food fads, revisited

Food fads are a thing. Every year, it seems, we learn about something else we should or shouldn’t do or eat for so-called optimal health. Milk is in until it isn’t. Alternate kinds of milk are in until they aren’t. We can eat based on our blood types. We can use ancient traditions. We can even get into gastro-molecular inventions (what!?).
