)-- What is the problem with the way we currently are teaching students in today’s classroom? “Classrooms today look and operate the same way as they did in the 1940’s. It is time for a change,” says Nate Whitsett author, educator, and rap artist. “My purpose is to be a Motivational Teacher. I use rap as a tool to motivate and educate students in this Hip Hop generation. There is a reason why a kid can recite songs from the radio word for word and immediately have trouble remembering math facts,” says Whitsett.
Nate recently resigned from teaching in the classroom and developed the “Think A+ Tour.” He now travels the nation on a mission to impact change in the process one district, one administrator, one teacher, and one student at a time. He comes with a wealth of knowledge and extensive background working with people young and old in the state of Michigan. He has been in the field of Education & Human services for over 25 years. He has a very strong relationship with the Public and Charter School community of Metro Detroit.
Nate is the author of The Answer: Finding Purpose & Building Relationships in the Classroom. After reading, discussion can be generated to address various questions: How can a student make it to the 4th grade without learning how to read? Why is it so easy to give up on students with behavioral challenges? What can parents do to support and reinforce academic success?
Nate has a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Michigan University (Ypsilanti, Michigan) and a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Grand Canyon University (Phoenix, Arizona). His education coupled with the experiences of being raised in a low income, single parent household, pushed him to become a self-proclaimed, “College Kid with a Street Degree.”
