Daily, I make make jokes degrading myself, pretend that Pythagoras is my hero, and sing self-created theme songs for terrible games that I made up for my students, all in the name of increasing student achievement.

In Middle School, I dreamed of turning jumping on a pogo stick into an extreme sport. I could jump on one without using my hands, spin the stick around in air, and go up steps. Sadly, I have only jumped on one once in the last five years.

One day, I will own an ice cream shop that gives its profits to organizations working for social justice.

My wife, likely, does not approve of my picture.
