Franco announced on his Instagram page that he would be teaching a course for high school aged students in Palo Alto, CA at Palo Alto Senior High School.

The actor is a 1996 graduate of the school and is looking to teach 24 students in the film workshop.

Franco is well known for his serious commitment to education. After all, how many Hollywood superstars have actually gone on to teach college level courses and pursue an Ph.D?
