The good fight

. May 18, 2012.

Teachers don’t have it too easy these days. They face layoffs, a lack of supplies and staying updated on ever-changing technology, yet many of them can still do some pretty amazing things — like shaping lives. American Teacher, a feature-length documentary that follows four teachers from all over the country, was produced by 826michigan co-founders Dave Eggers and Ninive Calegari and will screen at the Michigan Theater on Wednesday, December 14. The evening is sponsored by — and will benefit — 826michigan, a non-profit writing and tutoring center. Jonathan Dearman, one of the documentary’s featured teachers, will be available for a public Q&A. $6. 7pm. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St. 734-761-3463. www.826michigan.com.
