Over the summer, eighth grade teacher John Leal visited ComicCon in San Diego, California. Mr. Leal is known for his love of superheroes, particularly the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and often shares his likes with his classes.
Mr. Leal travelled to San Diego and went to the annual ComicCon with his fiance and a few friends. This experience helped him try out new things that he hasn’t tried on previous visits.
“Every time I go to San Diego ComicCon, I always do something I didn’t do before,” said Mr. Leal.
Knowing what interests teachers outside of school can help students relate to their instructors more in the classroom.
“It makes me feel a little different about Mr. Leal because now we can be more understanding about what his interests are and what he enjoys,“ said eighth grader Lauren Powell.
