The Light Rain Showers

  • Wearing Nanjing University t-shirts and talking about world hunger in parochial New England high school
  • Eating cereal for lunch with the science department, and getting the other teachers to do the same
  • Giving a day off incentive to students if they could avoid being absent or late to a class for an entire semester (it worked!)
  • Taking the honor roll out of the local newspaper (and being skewered by Rush Limbaugh and Jay Leno)
  • Teaching critical race theory for the past ten years — adding it myself to the course offerings at the school
  • Ditching email at work
  • Bringing mindfulness into the school community
