Latest Joe Therrien Items
Earlier this month, the left-wing magazine the Nation highlighted Joe Therrien as a symbol of the Occupy Wall Street movement. A New York City public-school drama teacher, Mr. Therrien was frustrated with the shortcomings of the school system. So he quit his job and "set off to the University of Connecticut to get a Master of Fine Arts degree in his passion - puppetry." Three years and $35,000 in student-loan debt later, Mr. Therrien returned home, only to find he couldn't land a full-time job. Apparently, a master's in puppetry doesn't provide the competitive edge in the marketplace he'd hoped for.
