Yankee Fans in the News: D.C.'s teacher of the year

The Council for Advancement and Support of Education and Carnegie Foundation recently named Patrick Jackson the Teacher of the Year for the District of Columbia.

This from the news release:

Step into Patrick Jackson's classroom and you're liable to get a baseball tossed at you. That's his preferred method of calling on students, so you better look alive.
Jackson, Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Education in SIS, will pose a question or offer an idea about Hobbes or NATO or even Star Trek, and then throw a squishy baseball (he is a devoted Yankees fan) at a student to engage him or her in the conversation.

Another Yankee fan doing his part.
