Teachers can inspire students to be better students, as well as better people. Reno Youth Radio’s Maria Ballesteros reports on one teacher in Washoe County who is influencing her students both inside and outside the classroom.
Mrs. Raker teaches physics and statistics. Her lectures are exceptional. But outside the classroom she is exceptional, too. She is a strong advocate for community service. She volunteers constantly and takes her students along and she teaches at the Academy of Arts, Careers and Technology or AACT, a local Reno high school.
