Despite himself, L’Quintis continues teaching English at the St. Michael’s School on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.  For the most part he likes the place, though the students often look at him funny when he asks them to not cut in line.  During his nine-year tenure he has taught a total of 548 kids the gospel according to Emerson, Rilke, and Huckleberry Finn.
