The world according to Kramer
After 38 years of teaching and coaching, Tom Kramer has seen a lot.
The history teacher taught during the fall of the Soviet Union, the rise of personal computers, cell phones and more than a few wars. He coached tennis champions, including his daughter Karyle and fellow teacher Jennifer Gochanour.
For all the things he’s seen, Kramer has never laid eyes on the anonymously created and highly unofficial Facebook page called “Mr. Kramer.”
The Facebook page, which has 198 “likes,” was created by students who really would like to remain anonymous. They posted a disclaimer on Facebook that says the page is neither edited nor overseen by Kramer.
The page is filled with Kramerisms, and the longtime teacher admitted some of them may be authentic.
“My guess is that these are a collection over the last 20 years or so. I know kids in the past would write them down here or there,” Kramer said.
“Somehow, they’ve made their way on to Facebook, which I’ve never been on, ever,” he added.
The fake profile was created in December. The real Mr. Kramer said Facebook is “a waste of time and a waste of space.”
“Well, obviously they don’t have much to do then, do they?” Kramer asked. “They must be bored silly.”
