Yvonne Lamothe, a painter and visual art teacher has taught in city schools for 23 years. She received National Board certification in adolescent through young adult visual art in 2000. She has contributed to the making of Teach in many capacities, advising, directing, set design, cinematography, interviewing, photography and writing. The importance of setting the record straight about the real work teachers do and the need for equity and respect for all children in their learning and in their lives has motivated her interest in the development of TEACH. This is her first feature length documentary.

Marc Gurvitch - Producer
Currently based in Boston, he comes to  documentary filmaking via a long and twisting road. After completing PhD courses in Economics, he  began a career as a nursing assistant in a public psychiatric hospital, and then becoming a cinematically inspired nurse, (Titticut Follies, Nurse Ratchett). After a few too many communication failures with his patients, he became a car salesman, and found to his surprise that his psychiatric skills were useless in selling power to the powerless, but very useful in diagnosing and referring his fellow salesmen. He is currently a clinical instructor in psychiatric nursing. He has been inspired by the  documentary films of  Julia Reichert and Lorraine Gray.
