Minnetonka Teacher Uses Vinyl Records to Connect With Students
Minnetonka High School history and geography teacher Sam Neisen is being praised for not only his excellent teaching abilities, but for the way he’s been able to connect with students.
According to WCCO, Neisen recently founded Vinyl Club, which brings students together for a time to enjoy music, talk and connect with one another.
“We listen to vinyl records that the kids bring in and eat candy and listen to music, it’s just kind of a nice place for people to get together in a low stakes environment,” Neisen told the news organization.
Neisen is beloved by the students, and he was even sought out to head up another group called Difference for Women, which aims to empower women throughout the globe by raising money and providing education.
“The students do a great job with it, I’m more of the advisor,” Neisen reportedly said.
