    Awesome!
    When I was in high school my Dad taught at the city school (and out main rival). He tried to talk us into transferring to his school. Absolutely a non-starter.

    When I taught, as I was reprimanding one student I asked him if he wanted to go talk to the principal… or to his mom. But I’m sure that YOUR sons would never be sent to the office. Congrats on the new venture.
