Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back!

The start of a new school year brings with it a myriad of feelings: relief, excitement, trepidation, sadness . . . for students and educators (and parents!)

This month, we’re celebrating the teachers who come prepared, deliver new information to budding minds, and go above and beyond to help their students.  Teacher/Pizza Guy is one teacher’s story. Through poems, Jeff Kass documents the year he worked three jobs—high school English teacher, part-time director for a literary arts organization, and pizza delivery man—to make ends meet.

Kass is unapologetically political without distracting from the poems themselves but rather adds layers and nuances to the fight for the middle class and for educators as a profession.
