March 3, 2017 10:00 AM

 

The Dewitt, MI, and Michigan Creativity groups were pleased to showcase a production of Stand and Deliver, last month. The play based on the 1988 award winning film still considered the "Rocky" of educational films. It tells the true story of a group of inner city students from Garfield High School in East Los Angeles who work to prove the skeptics wrong. It also features the relentless pursuit of their new teacher Jamie Escalante from Bolivia. His quirky sense of humor and odd teaching methods coupled with his determination to disrupt the status quo ends up saving students from becoming victims of a failed system and an ill-funded school where gangs, drugs, and dropouts are sadly the norm.

August 20, 2015 6:00 PM

This summer, a small group of teachers came together to work on a unique project to shoot a short video to help create a new positive narrative in education. During a time when educators’ voices are not being adequately heard, it is vital to amplify the true stories and experiences of those in the trenches. Many of us know why we became educators; however, this has been lost in the “static.” We believe this video (Reignite the Profession) will serve as an initial step in helping to change the view of our profession. However, to make this happen, we need your help!!!
