Teachers Rock on CBS Friday
On Friday CBS will air Teachers Rock, a tribute concert celebrating teachers and education. The benefit concert has live performances by Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, Fun. and Josh Groban and special appearances by Viola Davis from “Won’t Back Down”, Josh Hutcherson, Miranda Cosgrove, Pauley Perrette, and many more. Proceeds from Teachers Rock will benefit three non-profit organizations: DonorsChoose.org, Feeding America and Teach for America.
My daughter and I attended the concert last night, and it was really amazing. It's so great to see teachers getting a little credit for their job. If you have an amazing teacher in your life you can nominate them for the Teachers Rock Wall of Fame, and let them know how appreciated they are. Every day from now to September 20th one nominee will be inducted and they will receive a $500 gift card.
It really was a great night, and a wonderful opportunity to honor teachers and spotlight three great charities while enjoying a great concert. If you watch Friday you can look for me, I think you can see me in the background when they honor a teacher in the audience toward the end of the show.
See you there!
