The homeless teacher project

ORLANDO, Florida (WESH) – An Orlando a middle school teacher is posing as a homeless person. He hopes his experiment will hopefully help others but he fears a criminal may have recently targeted his family knowing he was not home.

“All this walking and not eating well is not doing me too well and I assure you I got ate by every single bug known to man tonight,” said the teacher.

He hopes to raise awareness of the challenges the homeless face and to engage his students in the lesson by sharing his experience on Facebook and Youtube.

He says homelessness is harder than he ever imagined. Sleeping on the concrete is easy, it is always being treated like junk. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
