My 2 Cents: OU Grad Talks About His 'No KD' Zone In Classroom

Last night, I told you about recent OU grad, Tucker Hein, who's teaching his first days of 9th grade algebra now in Indianapolis.

He put up this bulletin board with a Thunder pennant declaring his classroom a "No KD Zone" with signs stating that his students won't take the easy way out, walk away from a challenge, or quit on him.

The bulletin board has gone viral on the Internet.

When I talked with Mr. Hein, he said I was the first reporter to contact him Tuesday, but it's taken off since, in fact, he was getting ready to do an ESPN interview when we talked again this afternoon.

He says he was wanting something to remind his students to work hard, and he came up with the KD bulletin board idea the day before school started.

He told me he wondered if people would think it was stupid, and never dreamed it would get so much attention, or he would have made it look nicer.

Hein says when his students saw it, they got into a big debate about Durant leaving the Thunder, and that his boss, the school principal, cracked up when he saw it.

No doubt a great icebreaker for a first-year teacher.

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 cents.
