The film emphasizes Angela Panel Scioli‘s (Wake County Teacher at Leesville High) work as a performer for these varied audiences, and we document her struggles and triumphs to be a successful teacher, activist, mother, and wife. The film contends with the view of teachers shaped by seductive media experiences, which reduce teachers to the simplistic dichotomy of good or bad. The film demonstrates that teacher performance is difficult to quantify and dispels myths about teaching that may present a barrier to meaningful educational reform. This event is FREE TO THE PUBLIC. There will be a discussion with the audience after the film.
