Louisville - Mr. Jeffrey Wright, a physics teacher at the Louisville Male Traditional High School, is one of those memorable and inspirational teachers. He was the subject of a short film called "Wright's Law" made by a former student.
With education a topic in social and economic politics, teachers are the unsung heroes as they teach the classes, deal with the kids, and so forth. You, as a school student, may have come across a couple of teachers that were inspirational. Teachers are usually one of the biggest influences on a person. In the case of physics teacher Jeffrey Wright, who teaches physics at the Louisville Male Traditional High School, is an inspiration to his students. Wright was the subject of a short film called “Wright's Law” by Zack Conkle who is a former student of his. Through teaching physics, Wright finds creative ways to keep his students engaged and attentive.
He uses a combination of science and love; however, a video inspired by the short film was made and was uploaded by the New York Times. The NY Times video also focuses on Wright's home life as he is the father of a son with a rare brain disease called Joubert's Syndrome. Also, several students of Wright's were interviewed. According to these students, Mr. Wright is a very inspirational teacher and an important figure in their lives. Wright bestowed his life wisdom when his students started asking the big science questions like the origins of the universe. He would use physics as a means to talk about religion and the adversity of raising his son. Near the end of the video, Wright said that it's important to be loving and caring.
Wright shows in the video that a teacher doesn't just “teach” a specific subject. When engaging students, Wright says that the “one-size-fits-all” is not the best approach.
