Sporting lessons

Red pens, Schoolloop posts, text-heavy PowerPoints, scribble-filled whiteboards. Teachers are often associated with, well, teaching. But not every word uttered by a teacher is about sentence structure or derivatives. Some words are whispered in private, muttered in thought, or for some teachers, shouted in a field. Whether their education speaks of Spanish or history, for one group of teachers, soccer is their field of interest every Wednesday. On Fridays, former lawyer Jon Stark takes a team to a different court, in the field house. There they play dodgeball together every week, but they aren’t dodging duties. Their jerseys mark not a different identity, nor an uncharacteristic activity, but, still as teachers, a different part of their lifestyle.
