In the **How I Teach** series, teachers answer some questions on the tools and strategies they use to get stuff done in and out of the classroom. Each teacher will work off a set of questions (some of which are borrowed from the lifehacker series) and answer what they like.

Jon Barker is a colleague of mine here at our school in Cleveland. He teaches Algebra I, Precalc, AP Calc BC, and Multivariable Calc. Our rooms are right next to each other, and I will often pound on the wall to taunt/complain. This guy seriously loves learning, and to prove it is he is taking AP US history along side students this year (in the past he took AP Modern European History).
