Meet the Teachers Behind the HIT Music Video “READ” – Motivating Students Through Art

Hello BAM-iT! Edu Class,

How many of you can say you had — or have — teachers who loved you enough to release an educational music video to the world JUST TO MOTIVATE YOU IN THE CLASSROOM?! The students of Oak Park Elementary School in Florida are that fortunate. I recently shared the music video “READ” on the Black And Making It: Edu Edition Facebook page, and the video has gotten over 9.8K views and 356 shares to date. With such great audience reception, I decided to invite the Oak Park Elementary teachers behind the music video for an interview, and they graciously agreed. Check out my interview with them in the video below. Watch to the end to see the full “READ” music video.
