Teacher of the Year, a Documentary Based on a True Story

Teacher of the Year is a documentary film that reveals the complex reality of teaching in the 21st century and explores the forces that influence a teacher's performance for the competing needs of audiences made up of students, parents, administrators, other teachers, politicians, and the public at large.

I was an Indiegogo backer of this film in 2014, with the credit of Associate Producer.

    Introduction

The 84

The 84 is a statewide movement of youth fighting tobacco in Massachusetts; the 84 represents the 84% of Massachusetts youth who did NOT smoke when the movement began. (Now, 86% of youth do NOT smoke.)

I served as a volunteer at the 2013 Kickoff: I helped with audio/visual equipment and monitoring training sessions on tobacco-industry tactics and e-cigarettes.
