We had the distinct pleasure of working once again with the NEA Foundation on making films for the 5 Finalists of the Horace Mann Awards for Teaching Excellence. The highest accolade in the public education world. We are sent to 5 cities around the country (or Germany / Military Base this year). While telling these amazing stories is an honor, one of the greatest rewards are the personal connections we make with these amazing educators.
Please see below Kerisa Baedke's video from Waukee Iowa. Kerisa's dedication to creating a unique classroom environment immerses her students in the language and culture she teaches. Her loving personality and beautiful spirit were captured in one of the five mini-films we produced:
