Last year, at this time, Johnathon Lester was not in a classroom. In fact, he spent most of his time at the mall, but after owning and running Campus Collections for several years, he decided he'd try something new-- middle school math.
He says he's happy with the career about-face, and it seems his students are pretty pleased to have him around as well.
