Last night CBS put on a special concert benefiting teachers and education. Actress Viola Davis who plays Major Gwen Anderson in the Ender’s Game movie was among the attendees along with “Dave Grohl, Usher and Maroon 5′s Adam Levine and James Valentine.” Including other actors “Meryl Streep, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Garner, Jack Black, Morgan Freeman and Matthew Morrison.”
The show is set to air Saturday at 8:00 pm E.T on CBS.
A concert is a start of a small thank you to teachers for what they do everyday for our education. Coincidentally, Professor Cross, my first year English professor in college, introduced me to Ender’s Game and in another class with her introduced me to Ender’s Shadow. From there, I went on to read all of the Ender’s series and the Shadow saga. Is there any teacher that inspired you to pursue something that changed your mind or life? Any that, like me, showed you Ender’s universe? Let us know in the comments.
