A Florida teacher shares a story about meeting WWE's Road Dogg:
My name is Willie Davis and I am a teacher with the Escambia County School District in Pensacola, Fla., at Holm Elementary School. I am a teacher of children with varying disabilities. I went to a local wrestling promotion called All Pro Wrestling here in Pensacola, where I met one of my favorite wrestlers of the Attitude Era, the Road Dogg. I appreciate the time that he took to talk with me about my class and my students. He signed autographs and took pictures with my students. His involvement in the promotion allowed all of my students a free three-day weekend pass to their events for my students spring break.
I am thankful for what he has done and the turn around he has made in his life. ... Thank you again Road Dogg for supporting children and education.
An Australian high schooler tells Teachers' Corner about convincing his library to subscribe to WWE Magazine:
Hi, my name is Jason Di Battista and I am a 15-year-old high school student attending Penola College in Melbourne, Australia, and I am a huge WWE fan. You see, my school has a lot of WWE fans and I decided to go to the school library and suggested for the school to subscribe to WWE Magazine! And they told me that they were going through with it! Soon enough, the school will be receiving the magazines and will be putting them on the shelves as soon as they arrive. There are already a lot of students wanting to borrow the magazine to have a read! Now that proves that WWE is truly a global phenomenon!
