In THEORY, this was a really cool assignment to teach high school kids how to prepare for life in the real world.
One student, though, is light years ahead of his class.
Jeffrey Scott Davis is a teacher in Wichita Falls, Texas. For an assignment, he challenged his class to create a resume and cover letter for a Marvel character.
AWESOME idea, right? I mean I'm sure the hope was that students would take a character like Iron Man or Spider-Man and critically think through the attributes that would help them land a job in the real world.
My students had to pick a Marvel character to embody within a resume and cover letter. The idea that you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take lives within one particular student of mine. @RobertDowneyJr @prattprattpratt @vindiesel #iamwfisd #wfisdengineering @WFISD_CEC pic.twitter.com/7pddcxebsK— Jeffrey Scott Davis M.

In case you're not up on your Marvel Universe, Groot is a popular character from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and his dialogue for the ENTIRE movie is just the phrase "I Am Groot".
So one student, thinking through all of the possible characters, decided he could most accurately depict the positive attributes of...yep...Groot.
The internet is obsessed with this obviously future Harvard graduate.
A well-rounded candidate, but I hear he's a bit wooden in interviews— Josh K. Elliott (@joshkelliott) May 10, 2018
But did you give him an “A+” ? pic.twitter.com/DQ4eQiKxjY— faded. (@impatient_glo) May 10, 2018
I feel like that resume has some room to grow.— Victor Puente (@thevictorpuente) May 10, 2018
Give the kid a FULL SCHOLARSHIP somewhere immediately!
By the way, the assignment got an A. I mean, honestly, how can it not?
