Ryan Gallagher is a good teacher

Oh how very very neat-o. Ryan Gallagher, of Bootstrap Press, is also a high school English teacher at Malden High (alma mater of my awesome SIL Amanda--go blue and gold!). Some of his AP students did a study of Dorothea Lasky, including a paper and imitation poems. It's so awesome; it almost makes me want to be a full time teacher again. (And then I tune into the news of Wisconsin and Florida and now my beloved Maine and I quickly change my mind.)
