Bob Thomas is an eighth grade social studies teacher who gets results by making learning a game.

Keeping it competitive, working in teams, keeps his students interest.

“When I was in high school I was on The Family Feud. My whole family went to California. We were on The Feud and I love the whole game show format. We do a lot of competitions,” Thomas explained.

He’s been in education for more than 35 years and has had to adapt to the changing times.
