Eric's Heroes: He teaches math as if his life depends on it
AUBURN, Wash. -- Remember that one teacher you had? The one that believed so much in you, that you had no choice but to believe in yourself?
You are about to meet another one.
His name is Dan Williams. He teaches mathematics at the Muckleshoot Tribal School. And he teaches as if his life depends on it.
Watch as the light bulbs turn on in young student’s eyes. Watch as he works the room, urging and prodding and pushing his students.
And as you will see, his methods and his passion have produced near-miraculous results.
