My teacher, Mr. Magnotti, is a KISS fanatic! Eyewitness news came in and filmed us in Brooklyn, N.Y. (yes, KISS' hometown), and they saw his whole classroom covered in KISS pictures, toys, plush animals, boots and a Paul Stanley flag that we stand and salute everyday while he plays the trumpet fanfare! He is crazy but teaches us every grammar rule by using KISS and Sesame Street. These are his heroes.
We have learned about more than just the 150 KISS concerts he attended. We try to be the best in his class because he will give KISS toys and tickets to the ones who do well. He has given KISS potato head figures, bobble heads of Paul, Eric, Gene and Tommy, singing dolls, KISS ARMY dog tags, glasses, hats, shirts, pez dispensers, CDs, xmas ornaments, drumsticks and comic books.
He showed us the picture he cherishes of the art painting he bought from Paul. He dragged the math teacher to 4 concerts in one week in September, even though we had school, he came in so excited! He shares his love of ENGLISH through KISS. If it were not for you guys, I would be dumb.
Please look at the channel 7 eyewitness news link of his classroom, you will see why we love him. He is a hot drummer for his cover band, all because of Eric, whom he idolizes. The guy is KISS crazy, you may know him from the M cap he wears at all of your concerts.
Enjoy the link! (You can see KISS all over the walls!) http://abclocal.go.com/wabc/story?section=news/local/new_york&id=8998758
