I've never had Mr. Jackson for a teacher, but I certainly do love the same people he does.
I am also a fan of sweaters.
Current Mood: amused
Why no, I don't actually live in the UK, but I greatly enjoy those things British. MJ went to Coachella this year, which is SWEET!
What?!? He did?! Oh my god. If you're lying, i'll die.
What is this community really about?? Is it really a community dedicated to a math teacher you love?? That's insane... As a math teacher myself (well, nearly) I have to say the devotion is stunning. Well done!
It really is.
Although being summer and all, it's a bit dead.
What makes this guy so great? And what grade does he teach?
has a flat top
says "switchy switchy"
and teaches algebra 2
Nice. I mean, "switchy switchy"... err, or something.
who are you by the way...besides an aspiring math teacher
Umm, nobody really. I'm a 23 (well, 24 in like 3 weeks) year old. I live in southeastern Massachusetts. I go to college at Rhode Island College in Providence and I have one more year. When I graduate, I hope to move to London to get my master's and teach over there. I think that's it as far as me... I know it's pretty random that I even found this community but I think it's the ultimate tribute that you guys started a LJ community for your math teacher. I guss in some ways I hope I'm good enough one day to have students do something like this. It's inspiring! :o)
teehee well thanks
and ps you dont have to be a great math teacher to get a community you just need to be really hilarious
Hehe, that's a good tip!! I'll start to work on my improv now... Hey, who needs algebra? Not me!
Oh, yeah, and another question: Do you guys actually LEARN in this guy's class? If so, what are his teaching methods that are the most effective?
singing the quadratic formula to the tune of jingle bells
That's insane. And awesome. This guy is my hero!!
