A physics teacher so extraordinary he can explain combustion and love

The physics teacher Jeffrey Wright has long been a favourite of students at Louisville Male High School. One says he is ‘the epitome of what a teacher should be’. Wright uses goofy behaviour and eye-catching experiments to grab his pupils’ attention, and he keeps them engaged by investing in them as individuals. When asked why, he says that ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t work with education. Wright learned this last lesson after his son Adam was born with Joubert syndrome, a rare disorder that limits his control over his body.

Director: Zack Conkle
