Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

For the love of teaching



The LA Times ran a really nice column over the weekend about a stellar math teacher who retired because of finances and, when he tried to return to the job for free, he faced so much red tape it almost didn't happen

Only the intervention of the superintendent got Bruce Kravets back where he wanted to be.

"Finally, toward the end of August, Kravets was officially invited back," columnist Steve Lopez writes. "When I dropped in on him one day last week to see what the magic is all about, it seemed to me that he may be good for another 42 years. Kravets, who had only two sick days in four decades, told me he's having as much fun now as ever."

Know anyone like this in our neck of the woods? We'd love to share their story, too.
