I don't think standardized tests are going to help, kids are so bogged down with tests these days, they learn more about the correct answer to #5 than the actual materials that will make them know and understand WHY it's the correct answer.
Those are my views. You can bring a funny and/or younger teacher to the classroom and most likely the students will like him very much, thank you. His capabilities notwithstanding.
