    Teacher Garry Lawson addresses students and faculty at Keefe Avenue School on Tuesday after receiving one of 48 awards nationwide through the Troops to Teachers program, which encourages veterans to become teachers.To retired U.S. Army Sgt. Garry Lawson, drill sergeants and school teachers face four types of learners:

    The willing and able, the unwilling and able, the willing and unable, and the unwilling and unable.

    The first group isn't necessarily easy. Advanced kids and advanced soldiers need attention to reach higher. And the last group isn't always a lost cause. They just need different incentives, as do those in the middle groups.

    That approach is partly why Lawson, a military veteran-turned-special education teacher in Milwaukee Public Schools, earned a nod of recognition from the Department of Defense on Tuesday for his leadership in education at Keefe Avenue School, 1618 W. Keefe Ave.
