Hello everyone and thank you for stopping by and visiting Planetgtm.com. My name is Ryan Neal McMackin A.K.A. GTM (Great Teacher McMackin) I know that sounds kind of silly however I was given the nick name from my former students and somehow it just happen to stick with me over the years. The nick name originated from a popular anime series I was never aware of the anime GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka), I took it upon myself to watch and get familiar with the series and to my surprise GTO is an amazing story. The main character Onizuka is quite the character so I am really honored to be compared to him by my students. Then again I assume my peers wouldn’t be LOL!
So if you’re not familiar with GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) I highly recommend any teacher that’s in the industry to take it upon yourself and watch the series, you might learn quite a bit on how to connect with your students.
