American Teacher: Heroes in the Classroom

“I never set out to be a teacher. I thought of becoming an architect or even a computer engineer. I never thought I’d end up teaching English. That is, until I ...had my first truly Socratic style English class in college, with an inspiring professor, Dr. Deborah Paes de Barros, who engaged us in dialogue that actually got me thinking about the world in a whole new way. Her class inspired me to major in English, and set me on my path to becoming a teacher.” --Daryl Bilandjiza

"I go back to the prison sometimes just to share some hope and tell folks, ‘Man, it’s better on this side.’”
--Ray Gant, excerpted from Everyday Heroes:
50 Americans Changing the World One Nonprofit at a Time

“I’m the guy that goes into all the areas of the city that other people are scared to go into—the threatening, high-crime, drug-infested neighborhoods. People often ask me why I do it. I say, ‘Because somebody has to.’”
