It’s officially back-to-school time, and that means another year of teachers trying to find new ways to keep their students motivated.

When I’m not sitting in front of my computer screen writing for the web, I also earn a living by substitute teaching. Although I don’t have my teaching certificate yet, I’ve formed a lasting bond with many of my students and I hope that I’ve left a lasting impression on them. With that said, I find it quite difficult to approach traditional school topics in a unique way that will engage students and take them to a higher level of learning. Perhaps I should take a play or two out of this Japanese teacher’s sketchbook.

His chalkboard creations first caught the attention of the public after he depicted characters from Japanese anime series “Your Name.”
