He knows other teachers feel his pain, but Eddie has a special gift. Eddie has the gift of humor. Eddie's fellow teachers love hearing Eddie's hilarious stories of his students' antics and struggles of teaching.
Eddie started recording short videos with his funny stories and sharing them on the internet and he immediately found a following. Teachers all around the country could understand the troubles he faced and loved feeling understood. Eddie is now a major celebrity amongst teachers. In fact his comedy has been so successful that Eddie started his very own standup tour. And Eddie is selling out venues to teachers only, all across the country. "He's like Elvis with a Master's degree". And he is hilarious.

Eddie takes some time as people recover from the belly laughs to remind them that they are special and loved and no one should stifle their creativity or love for teaching. It's not all laughs and hilarity for Eddie.
Comedy helps teachers deal with the struggles but it is also getting attention for the struggles teachers go through. And God bless him for doing that! If there is a teacher in your life, please let them know how much you love and appreciate them.
