Gene Simmons Shows The Way Of Making The World A Better Place
KISS bassist Gene Simmons recently posted a tweet to share his thoughts about young people’s ideas and dreams as a former teacher. Also, he revealed how people can turn the world into a better place with the help of young people’s visions.
As you probably know, during the ’70s, Gene Simmons was a 6th-grade teacher in New York City’s Spanish Harlem. He only taught there for six months because he then realized his greatest passion was music. In one of his previous interviews, Simmons explained the reason behind quitting his job by saying that he wanted to be on the stage as a rock star.
Moreover, in 2005, Simmons went back to teaching for a reality show named ‘Gene Simmons’ Rock School’ in which he was challenged to train young students to form a rock band that can give a short performance. Therefore, it became a great opportunity for the kids who dreamed of becoming rock stars. The show gained great popularity and appreciation from the fans.
In his recent tweet, Simmons said that ‘everything begins with dreams’ and drew attention to encouraging young people while they are trying to achieve their goals. As a former teacher, he stated that teachers should teach the importance of work ethic to the younger generations, as it is one of the most essential things to make the world a better place.
Simmons’ tweet read:
“Everything begins with dreams and big ideas. Encourage young minds and hearts. As a former 6th grade teacher, it’s our job to instill the work ethic in young minds. Do it. For they shall inherit the Earth and yes, I write my own tweets (Find me in the photo).”
