We’ll meet some Charlotte teachers who were part of a recent local documentary that covered the struggles, frustrations, and also triumphs of working with school students in Charlotte’s urban schools. The documentary, called Souls of Our Teachers, was made to increase understanding that good public schools in our region are in the best interest of every citizen who lives here. We’ll talk about what inspires these teachers to work with troubled kids, and discuss the good, the bad, and the truly inspiring sides of teaching in a high-poverty school.
