Think back on your education. Is there one particular teacher who stands out? Maybe it’s several. Did they help you become the person you are today? Did they shape the way you thought about the world? Did they make sure you overcame, or were #BIGGERTHAN, your obstacles? Now, how about a “bad” teacher? Was there a teacher who made you feel like giving up? Who didn’t seem to care about you or your future? These are the two kinds of teachers we never forget.
A teacher can change your entire school experience and your perception of learning, which is why Usher’s New Look is partnering with Teach For America to help find more great teachers who will use their passion to change the face of education.
