A friend of mine posted this yesterday on Facebook, and I thought it was so awesome I just had to re-post it here. Jeffrey Wright is a science teacher at Louisville Male High School in Louisville, KY, and he’s also my new hero. Not only is he a dedicated teacher who strives to make learning science fun and interesting and challenging for his students; not only is he an incredibly compassionate man who shows real personal interest and concern for his students; but he’s also the father of a young son with a rare disability and a long list of special needs; AND his Catholic faith and his relationship with God give him the energy and strength to keep going. Here’s his story as reported by the New York Times:
People like this give me hope for the future of our world. God bless you and your family, Mr. Wright.
