Want a good read — and it comes with video and photos? You might try this LA Times feature about Preston Q. Boomer, still inspiring science students in a small northern California high school after 50 years in the classroom. He’s one of a kind.

The story gave me an idea. It says that Boomer is one of about 18 California teachers still in the classroom after 50 years. Are there any such in Arkansas? I’d like to hear about them.
