Teachable Moments: Second Chances
We all admire the work that teachers do, but unless you've been in the classroom, you can never truly understand it. Teachable Moments is a unique live storytelling event for current and former educators in New York City. Each event gives listeners an unadulterated look inside the unparalleled ups and downs of teaching. Teachable Moments features true, uncensored stories from the classroom focused on a different theme. On the 27th, teachers from across NYC, from different grades and different types of classrooms, will tell their stories about "Second Chances." We are excited to work with Venuse to bring this show to the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe. https://ci.ovationtix.com/35133/production/1007841?performanceId=10390817

What can you do if your child qualifies - but isn't offered a spot? Join us to find out! This event is for parents of children aged 0-5. All event tickets come with wine and light refreshments, learning materials, and a gift bag for the road.
