Mammoth helps me in the classroom

The name’s Lee, or Mr. Underwood if you are one of my charges. I teach Philosophy and Rhetoric and Composition, with a ninth grade AVID class thrown in for good measure, at Millikan High School in Long Beach, Cali. I was born and raised in the city, and am glad to be teaching in the Broad Prize Award winning district.

  1. You teach the courses I dream of teaching, yet have never found a school that offered them. I’m jealous!

    • Thanks for checking out my blog! I am very lucky and am the product of being at the right place at the right time. Keep in touch. Do you keep a blog?

  2. No way. I have no time for any of that and don’t think anyone would want to read it any how. I think I stumbled upon yours from edutopia cause you had a nice looking picture. Ha.

    • hehe. If your reading stuff from edutopia, I have a feeling you have some words on the subject of education. 🙂

  3. At this point in the year, there is nothing I want to talk about less than school. Other than the fact that I want to go back! Ha.
    So I guess a good question is how do you keep your enthusiasm once your seniors have lost theirs?
    I only teach freshman and sophomores and even they check out as soon as it gets warm.
