Teachers pet: Mr. Lane Mcshane ’82
By Andrew Howard ’17
Mr. Tusell’s question from last editions “Teachers Pet”:
“What is your favorite pupusa?”
My favorite pupusa is the one on on my hands.
Many know about your interest in the JFK assassination, what first made you start thinking it was a conspiracy?
There’s hundreds of books, the facts just don’t line up, I have a commitment to justice and as a Jesuit educator, and I believe there is a strong relationship between truth and God and the truth has not been revealed yet.
What’s it like moderating three different clubs at Brophy? How do you manage it?
It’s a lot of fun, my clubs are a reflection of hobbies, I get to do a band club, attend hockey games, talk about politics that are uncommon. My new future educators club is interesting because there are some boys very interested in becoming teachers, and even though there are only a few of them, it is very fun and they are motivated to continue the Ignatian mission of making the world a better place.
You mentioned clubs are a reflection of your hobbies, what are some of your interests outside of Brophy?
Comedy, we used to have a “Monty Python” Club and I enjoyed that, I even had front row seats to Aziz Ansari.
Which classes do yo teach at Brophy, do you have a particular favorite?
I teach whatever Brophy pays me to teach, I teach English during the year, and history during summer school.
What is a question you would like to propose for the next teachers pet article?
Why is it that Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
