DURHAM, N.C. - Oct. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- Evette Rawls, a teacher at Neal Middle School in Durham, NC had enough. She has been teaching for twenty years and knew the struggle, especially first year teachers, were having. As a result, Ms. Rawls filmed the documentary: "Dear New Teacher: Teaching in A Pandemic." It all began back in 2018. Evette wanted to give teachers a leg up. Ms. Rawls begin organizing the Dear New Teacher Retreat for new teachers. Due to the pandemic, it was cancelled.

Evette was determined to make an impact. "As a veteran educator, and having a heart for new educators, I wanted to share their stories as well as create a space for educators to feel safe and an awareness that they are not alone in this journey of teaching," stated Evette Rawls. Using her iPhone, she was able to give voice to teachers regarding this unprecedented experience of teaching virtually, some having little to no experience in this genre, while expressing their feelings and concerns. Evette stated that she is also grateful to have the assistance of executive producers, Queen & Company Production, Raleigh, NC. Queen and Company is co-owned by Amineh Johnny and LeDarius Hicks.

There will be a private screening of the documentary on Wednesday, October 20, 2021, 6-8pm, at the Durham Arts Council, 120 Morris St, Durham, NC 27701.
