Meet Andy Kwok, rookie teacher extraordinaire

kwokresize2.jpgBeing a journalist isn’t easy, but it’s felt pretty darn comfortable these last two weeks. 

I’ve been following 22-year-old Andy Kwok, a first-year teacher at EXCEL High School at McClymonds for an ongoing project on new teachers.

Chapter 1 comes out on Monday, complete with a multimedia component (click here to see the video) and a blog.

Hopefully his blog will become a forum for new teachers to chime in with their stories and for veteran educators to offer advice — and maybe some solace, too.
