My Teacher My Hero

 

A special project, My Teacher, My Hero launched its new website today, http://myteachermyhero.com. My Teacher, My Hero is a social, video-driven website that honors teachers for the differences they have made in our lives.  Its goal is to inspire a new generation of passionate people to take pride in their desire to teach, and to remind others of the importance of teachers in their own lives.

The site allows users to share video tributes to the most influential teachers in their lives. Already, numerous business leaders, sports stars, and other luminaries have videotaped testimonials about the teachers who most inspired them.

Among those who have already shared videos are:

  • Craig Newmark (founder, Craigslist)
  • Seth Godin (author, blogger)
  • Roberto Clemente Jr. (former professional baseball player)
  • Robert Rubin (former Secretary of the Treasury)
  • Alan Mullaly (CEO, Ford)
  • Barry Meyer (CEO, Warner Brothers)
  • Dominique Moceanu (Olympic Gymnast)
  • Dane Bane (CEO, Trader Joe’s)
  • Dick Cook (Chairman, Disney Studios).

“Teachers open windows to the world for their students by giving them the tools and desire to discover their fellow humans,” said Ford Motor Company’s Alan Mullaly in his video, “It is through this discovery that we learn one of the most important lessons in life – we have more in common than we have differences. Thank you teachers everywhere!”

 

My Teacher, My Hero is sponsored by the MAT@USC, and built in partnership with Classwish.org and other organizations committed to improving the lives of teachers and students across the country.  If you want to find out more, you can contact them at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
