I co-teach 8th grade Social Studies. Our current unit is on the Holocaust. My goal in teaching history is not to accumulate facts, but for students to learn about humanity. Johan van Hulst, didn't just teach students something - he bore witness. He was a living testimony of what it means to teach, and risked his life to save others. Now, that's what I call teaching.
