Actor, producer and humanitarian Danny Glover visited TAF Academy on Oct. 11.
He observed a math classroom and visited with student ambassadors. Glover is preparing for a role on a new FOX series called "Touch," where he will play a professor who works with kids gifted in math and science.
Washington STEM, which promotes science, technology, engineering and math education, brought Glover to TAF Academy to show him an example of a 21st century classroom. They also hope he will think about the importance of STEM in his advocacy work. While at TAF Academy, Glover worked with students to solve a math problem on an interactive whiteboard in Ryan Preis's class and spoke with students about leadership.
