A quote from David Foster Wallace:
A RADICALLY CONDENSED HISTORY OF POSTINDUSTRIAL LIFE
When they were introduced, he made a witticism, hoping to be liked. She laughed very hard, hoping to be liked. Then each drove home alone, staring straight ahead, with the very same twist to their faces.
The man who’d introduced them didn’t much like either of them, though he acted as if he did, anxious as he was to preserve good relations at all times. One never knew, after all, now did one now did one now did one.

Life Before Thomas Jefferson High School
I taught at a youth correctional facility for five years, managed the Affective Needs Program at TJ for three years, and taught at Summit Academy for nine years. I greatly enjoy the writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, Richard Rorty, George Saunders, and David Foster Wallace. I enjoy activities such as rugby, basketball, and cycling.
Having chosen students as my passion, I have learned how to speak with my own voice. Teaching is a means to stimulate meaningful dialogue and encourage others to find their own voice. I share the same content as everybody else, but I try to make them colorful and attractive.
