It may be a little uncomfortable to teach all day with a stuffed turkey on your head, but it was a great honor for eighth grade...
Pass Christian Middle School eighth grade social studies teacher, Tyler Gaylord, may have taught classes on Friday dressed in a hilarious turkey ensemble; however, he was not the only character in the classroom.  Eighth grade language arts students dressed up as the characters from the play, Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller.  Despite the multitude of characters in the classroom, Mr. Gaylord still managed to treat his students to a test!
