Kiss and make up (lesson plans, that is)
Most days, one can find the McSparins and Grahams together in the Advanced Placement Biology room after school, discussing weekend plans, course objectives, shared students and stories about the Graham twins. Both couples’ relationships have flourished at RBHS, the Grahams’ for a decade and the McSparins’ for just a few months. For Valentine’s Day, the four teachers shared the stories of their proposals and progression of their relationships.
Tyler McSparin, who is substituting for Gregory Kirchhofer’s AP and honors chemistry classes, and Jamie McSparin, who teaches astronomy and environmental science, went to prom together when they were teens themselves. Now, they’re back at high school together, as teachers rather than students. Listen to the McSparins tell the story of their adventures and relationship. Photo courtesy of Jamie McSparin
