How do you compete as a teacher with Youtube, Facebook, iPads, smartphones, and all other distractions influencing your children and our students in the classroom?  How do you get students to put down their smart phones, stay focused, on task, listen, and work together towards progress?  Visualize teaching math to eight graders.  That's a daunting task for anyone, and it takes a very special teacher to inspire and lead a group of 13 and 14 year old teenagers to succeed in and outside the classroom.

Our inspiring educator today is Kyle Gurkovich, a middle school math teacher at Quibbletown Middle School in Piscataway NJ.  Kyle has unique methods to motivate his students, keep them inspired, and engaged in his classroom.  Join us and learn why Kyle will do whatever it takes to ensure his students' success and happiness.  Then ponder the superhuman feat that got Mr. Gurkovich in the Guinness book of Worlds' Records.
