WOW! That is fabulous news. Passion for teaching is a wonderful thing. There is no greater task than shaping young minds and instilling the joys of learning. Congratulations to him and the parents that raised him.

Mark, what a cool story. A big congrats to your son, Jason, and you and your wife for raising him! Helping to discover the world of reading is so critical to our children and society in general, especially in this day and age of electronic gadgetry. So kudos to him!
