Former WWE Superstar Caylen Croft, real name Kris Pavone, recently spoke with MyFOX in Tampa Bay about being an elementary school art teacher. Croft currently teaches at Seminole Heights Elementary in Seminole, Florida. Croft said:
"I got to live out a dream with WWE, but I feel almost more important was being done with it, and being okay with being done with it. I remember well what it was like to be a kid, and I hope I never lose that. I just love interacting with them."
Croft has also written and illustrated "No Beard," a book for kids that's based on a pirate's struggle for self-confidence. 1,000 copies of the book have been printed and are available through Amazon or MascotBooks.com. He talked about working on the book:
"At first I thought it would be fun to illustrate one. And then as I thought about it more, I'd get these ideas in my head."
