He values real-world learning and tries to incorporate that as much as he can. He always stands by what is right and always has a good attitude.

But when he notices these little things, heal ways finds a way to lift me up and other people too. And as well as making learning fun for everyone and makes learning a way that middle schoolers can understand and be a part of.
Every day he gets us going into class he dances with some kids gives us candy and snacks and drinks we can talk to him whenever we need he is always very nice think he would be the best there to get this.
