For 24 years, Iola Middle School history teacher Mark Boyd delivered his lessons while standing at the front of his classroom. He looked upon a sea of rambunctious eighth grade faces, watching through the course of the school year as they transitioned from children to teenagers on the cusp of adulthood.
