Story from the Huff Post:
Recently, I heard a captivating story about a teacher who could not read. This story is especially compelling because I am a fourth grade teacher and illiteracy still plagues our society. John Corcoran went through most of his life without being able to read. Surprisingly, he graduated high school and college while he was functionally illiterate. He even taught high school social studies for 17 years and was a successful teacher.
