30. A Mystery Man
Ed Kane was a teacher at Middlebury High
. He taught math. He was known as the "
Man." No one knows anything about him or
life. Ed wants to keep it that way.
didn't want to be a teacher. He wanted
be an astronaut, but things didn't work out
way. He came to Middlebury to teach, not
get to know the students.
Even though he
't the happiest or friendliest teacher, Ed was always
to help out his students if they needed
, but if they asked about his personal life,
would turn them away. One of the troublemakers
the class, Matt, asked Ed what his plans
the weekend were. "I don't know," Ed said. "
. Kane, tell us something about yourself," Matt asked. "
's enough, Matt!" Ed said.
It wasn't that Ed
embarrassed by his lifestyle, but rather, Ed just
that students should focus on math. If he
too friendly with them, they might think of
as an "easy" teacher. Ed was married, with
kids and one guinea pig. Ed's hobbies included
and swimming. Ed was a very intelligent man
only had two close friends.
