The coolest instructor I had in school was Dr.
Dean, who taught history! He was such an excellent orator because he fully immersed you in the stories he told.
Dr. Dean honestly made history alive and compelling. Occasionally I would get so caught up in what he was saying that I forgot to take notes. I never actually cared for any of my other classes, even though I never once missed one of his history lectures, he was just that interesting. I came to find out that Dr. Dean was an immense cannabis smoker, and liked to get nice and ripped right before class, no wonder he was so into telling his story, he was high as a kite! Back in those mornings cannabis was not seen as being a big deal. A few years later he would have been fired for smoking cannabis in a school office, it was a much cooler time back then. Of course no 1 smoked marijuana in public, or in the classroom – it wasn’t THAT cool of a time. On weekends we would sporadically gather at his house, and just love in his office he would smoke cannabis and tell long involved stories. I suppose the entire reason he got into teaching was just to have a reason to smoke marijuana and run his mouth! Today he would honestly skip over being a school instructor and just host a podcast. Almost half the podcasts I listen to are just people getting high on cannabis and then telling stories, so he would have fit right in!
