HERO OF THE WEEK: High School Teacher Jeffrey Wright

“There is something a lot greater than energy. There’s something a lot greater than entropy. What’s the greatest thing?”

“Love,” his students whisper.

“That’s what makes the ‘why’ we exist,” Mr. Wright tells the spellbound students. “In this great big universe, we have all those stars. Who cares? Well, somebody cares. Somebody cares about you a lot. As long as we care about each other, that’s where we go from here.”

Some of you may have seen this video when it first circled the interwebs a year and a half ago, but I just came across it and it was truly inspiring. There are so many teachers out there who deserve recognition for their teaching styles, attitude towards students, and the impact they have on their students.  Jeffrey Wright is an incredible combination of all of those things.  In the following video, you will see some commentary from his students, the ways he turns classroom learning into a fun classroom experience, and what his home-life is like. Mr Wright shows us that the driving factor, behind everything he does – at home and in the classroom, is LOVE.

THANK YOU, Mr. Wright… you are definitely a HERO in our eyes! We hope you have a chance to watch this video. It was a great start to our day and we hope it will be a great start to yours, as well. ~Jessica, HHA
