On today’s Last Bites, Mario shares his secret to keeping up with his son’s, Leo’s, school work. In order to be well informed on the subjects Leo is learning about, Mario stays two weeks ahead of the assigned reading, which is now focused on South American urban planning. The rest of the Chew Crew is shocked by the scope of Leo’s studies, and amazed by what kids are learning these days.
Taking a trip in time, the co-hosts share their favorite subjects when they were in school. Carla prides herself on loving both English and math classes; Clinton and Daphne looked forward to their science classes; Michael prefered math over his other subjects; and for Mario, it was all about the teacher. All it took was one inspiring teacher each year to change Mario’s perspective on his favorite class. Similarly, Michael remembers one special teacher, who sent all of his students a birthday card every year. Do you have one teacher who you will never forget?
