A student once told that I’m her “only cool teacher."* I’m that guy who eats all the free samples at outdoor food markets. I travel all the time—every few weekends I visit Boston or somewhere new. I make a mean crepe. I’m sarcastic, I overuse parentheses, I read the NY Times compulsively, I misuse idioms (I may have once said, "Not on my belt"), and I can be very gullible (my Australian friends convinced me that they ride kangaroos to school as children).
*Note: I had also just given that student lunch detention, so take her advice with a grain of salt.
