Matthew Pinzur, vice president of Strategic Communications for Jackson Health System, joined the 2017 Teach-A-Thon. "I know the impact we can have by being business professionals in the classroom for a day."

About the Teach-A-Thon
The Teach-A-Thon is an innovative campaign that challenges business professionals to step into the shoes of a teacher for at least one hour and teach a classroom of students. By experiencing first-hand the challenges of the teaching profession, the business professionals, known as Teacher Champions, become ambassadors in the community for recruiting, retaining, and rewarding quality teachers in our public schools. 

Become a Teacher Champion now! Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
