WHY DO WE TEACH?
Why teach in Detroit? A teacher isn’t the type of person that sits idly by and thinks “I wish someone would do something about that.” Nah… A teacher is the person that gets involved. Teachers find creative solutions. They inspire the children. They help the elders. A teacher is compelled to do -- compelled to make a change.
Detroit has survived because of people like this. People that support hardworking dreamers. People that thrive on change. We're a city that believes that hustle equals value. This is a close-knit, big city. Just big enough to find yourself, while getting lost in your passion. We’re a city of dreamers, do-ers, and go-getters.
