(WESH) An Orlando middle school teacher left his home on July 4th to spend a month living as a homeless person.
Thomas Rebman hopes to raise awareness of the challenges the homeless face and to engage his students in the lesson by sharing his experience on Facebook and YouTube
He says homelessness is harder than he ever imagined.
"All this walking and not eating well is not doing me too well and I assure you I got ate by every single bug known to man tonight," Rebman said.
