The Greatest Lesson

My favourite teacher of all time is my 8th grade algebra teacher, Mr. Fair. As much of a jerk as he was, and as much of his class as I slept through, he is the most honest teacher I've had to date. When I asked him, years ago in the 8th grade, why algebra mattered at all, he answered quickly, without looking away from the board. "It doesn't. Just learn it."
