NEW YORK — Miriam Reynold, a teacher at Suwanee’s Riverwatch Middle School, was one of eight educators in the country selected to work one-on-one with Broadway professionals at the fifth annual Freddie G Broadway Experience in New York City.
Music Theatre International (MTI) honors teachers who make a difference for their students and communities with the Freddie G Broadway Experience, named for Freddie “G” Gershon, chairman and chief executive officer.
In addition to the New York experience, each of the teachers’ schools received $5,000 from Freddie and Myrna Gershon to enhance their arts program.
The teachers met and worked with Broadway stars such as Stephen Sondheim, Jeanine Tesori and Warren Carlyle.
“These teachers do inspiring work with limited financial resources,” said Gershon. “It’s crucial we keep theater alive in this country by working with both educators and children. Myrna and I feel that America’s teachers should be honored and appreciated. Our future is in their hands.”
