Weird Al's Teacher-Like Qualities
NeedhamT

On my bus ride to school every day, my constant laughing used to irritate some of the other kids. When they asked why I was laughing, I point to my CD player and say, “I’m listening to Weird Al.” Their faces light up in recognition and their next questions are, “hey can I see that,” and, “wow, let me listen!” Weird Al is so funny and cool, and almost everybody likes him. I think he would make a great school teachre for several reasons.
He is great with kids. He even taught accordion lessons during college. He says that he loved teaching kids to play the accordion, the instrument he loves. Al also is a cool guy after concerts, signing autographs and talking to kids in the audience. I think his love for kids would make him an awesome teacher.
A sense of humor is another excellent quality for a teacher, and Al obviously has one. His songs have created millions, if not billions of laughs. His lyrics are hilarious, and very witty. Their fun to listen to and the music behind it is exceptional also. This is yet another reason why Weird Al would make a terrific teacher.
Al is also very hard working. At the age of 7, Al learned how to play the accordion. His accordion is his passion. He is now one of the best accordion players in the world. Getting ready to record their album, they have to play their songs thousands of times to tune them and perfect them, which show tremondous dedication. On tour, they go to a new city every few days, and they have to perform at their best every time. They must be extremely determined to be able to accomplish that. Dedication and determination are very important charcteristics for a teacher, because if a teacher was hard-working, he would inspire his student to be hard working also.
But most of all, he’s just an extraordinary guy. At the age of 44, Al is married with one daughter, whom he loves very much. He still writes and plays with his band, and last summer their new album came out, Poodle Hat. He hosted a TV show, but it was discontinued in 1998 when CBS dropped their whole Saturday morning line-up. He even got his start from the famous comedic song writer, Dr. Demento. He writes mostly parodies (he always get permission from the artists, even though he doesn’t have to), but about one fourth of his songs are originals. Hardworking, dedicated, funny, and kid-friendly, I think Weird Al would make an outstanding teacher.
