Teachers' Corner recently received a letter from an educator in Canada who uses a photo of John Cena to encourage students to write creatively.
As a grade six teacher I have a lot of young WWE fans in my class. A few years ago my husband took a picture of me with John Cena at a WWE live event. In class I do a lot of story writing based on picture prompts and this photo is always a hit! The kids want to know if I'm close friends with John Cena, if he was my boyfriend and sometimes I even get some in-ring action (where, of course, they make me lose). It's a great way to build rapport and I often encourage using WWE Superstars in their stories if that interests them.
This year, I directed a student who was working on a social action project to the be a STAR program when he needed to research an organization that was helping to fight bullying.
