Strauss: Dying teacher makes remarkable journey to visit former students

Education News from Washington Post - Thu, 01/16/2014 - 1:00pm

David Menasche was a very popular, albeit unconventional, literature teacher at Coral Reef Senior High School in Miami who listened to punk rock, loved to skateboard and was distinguished from his teaching colleagues by his many tattoos. In 2006, at the age of 34, he was diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer, but he resisted leaving the classroom, teaching through cancer treatments until 2012, when he became too weak to work. Despite being partially blind and paralyzed, he decided to travel around the United States to reconnect with former students and keep learning about life. Menasche has been to more than 30 cities in 11 states and reconnected with more than 75 stories on his journey, which he chronicles in his new book, ”THE PRIORITY LIST: A Teacher’s Final Quest to Discover Life’s Greatest Lessons,” which is now in bookstores.
