The Change Agents will have its local premiere on Thursday night at the Capitol Theatre.

Making Change in the Nelson classroom

The building blocks of education are essential. Reading, writing and arithmetic remain the vital tools young people need to succeed in life.

The building blocks of education are essential. Reading, writing and arithmetic remain the vital tools young people need to succeed in life.

Thankfully that’s not the only learning taking place in our schools. On a daily basis, the most inspiring teachers are providing students the little extras that propel young minds in unexpected directions.

In this nelsonstar.com story you can read about Thursday’s premiere of The Change Agents taking place at the Capitol Theatre Thursday night. In production for more than two years, the project was sparked by L.V. Rogers English teacher Robyn Sheppard.

Over the course of the last 24 months The Change Agents has touched many young lives, teaching them skills and giving them knowledge that you don’t find in textbooks. It’s that kind of bonus level of learning that provides the extra fuel students need to cut through the basics.

In presenting this story, Star reporter Megan Cole spoke with Grade 12 student Alecia Maslechko who has been with The Change Agents project since she was in Grade 10. Introduced to the fascinating world of movie making by Sheppard, Maslechko has now set her sights on a career in the industry. Without the extra effort put in by her teacher, it may never have happened.

Each and every school day, teachers fill young minds with information we hope will serve them well in whatever path they choose. It’s when a teacher adds inspiration to information that a real difference in a young life is made even more possible.
