Our Q&A with Joe Rovere:
Mr Fulton was my 7th grade math teacher. I will never forget the lessons he taught me. I don’t remember him because of the math lessons, I remember him because of the life lessons. Someone had to help me differentiate right and wrong, teach me there is a time and place, and most importantly, learn from my mistakes. He was a no nonsense kind of person when it came to behavior, and that is exactly what I needed. I often think about him and how he is somehow part of me and part of my approach to teaching.
