I can clearly remember my early childhood school years, all the fun times of friend making and freeze tag. I wish I could say that I still have kept those friendships throughout the years. I can say that I have carried plenty of valuable lessons and primary need to now hows, while in school. All of the days we as a class working hard together to learn and excel to best of our ability. All with the help of one person, to mold and TEACH. The job of a teacher can go under appreciated and over looked.

TEACH Documentary

We all have a teacher who’s shaped us, inspired us, even scared us, and whom we can credit with having empowered us to become who we are today.

“TEACH” is a two hour special set to debut on the CBS Television Network September 6, 8/7c which will inaugurate a yearlong social action campaign on the part of Participant, its digital arm TakePart, and its newly launched television channel Pivot, to elevate the profession of teaching and inform and engage students and recent graduates as they consider career choices.


The documentary follows four teachers from different schools across the USA over the course of a school year. It shows viewers a unique perspective into the challenges, demands and rewards of teaching and learn how for many teachers, teaching is not only a job, but also a mission.
