StoryCorps “National Teachers Initiative” at Eagle Rock

StoryCorps joined us on campus on December 9th & 10th, 2011 for the National Teachers Initiative. StoryCorps, the national non-profit oral history project, launched its National Teachers Initiative at the White House on Monday, September 19, 2011. Only 1% of the interviews facilitated make it to air on NPR’s Morning Edition. We are hopeful our stories will be heard by that larger NPR audience, however, over the coming months we’ll be posting some of the 8 hours captured.
