"Teacher quality is the answer"12 October 2011Factual80 mins
Inspired by one of their own, Daniela Robles, NBCT, twenty educators at Mitchell School stepped up to the challenge of the rigorous, self-directed professional development of National Board and Take One! Motivated by Robles’ vision of a cohort supporting one another to reach for excellence, her colleagues responded. They were even more impressed by the transformation they saw in Robles, who had gone into the National Board process as a good teacher and emerged as a true teacher leader. From Amy Coyle in her third year of teaching, to Billie Williams in her 22nd year, the Mitchell 20 formed a unique and remarkably diverse cohort all focused on a single goal—enhancing their classroom performance. Recognizing what a powerful professional development opportunity this was, the school’s administration, the Isaac District Office and the Arizona K12 Center all rallied to support this exceptional endeavor. From this, the Mitchell 20 emerged!
Aibileen Clark is a middle-aged African-American maid who has spent her life raising white children and has recently lost her only son; Minny Jackson is an African-American maid who has often offended her employers despite her family's struggles with money and her desperate need for jobs; and Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan is a young white woman who has recently moved back home after graduating college to find out her childhood maid has mysteriously disappeared.
Harry, Ron and Hermione continue their quest to vanquish the evil Voldemort once and for all. Just as things begin to look hopeless for the young wizards, Harry discovers a trio of magical objects that endow him with powers to rival Voldemort's formidable skills.
Long before he even met Shrek, the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss in Boots becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with the tough and street smart Kitty Softpaws and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty to save his town.
For Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day), the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston) into dust.
