My Teacher: Personal Stories and Rap Battles

Jun 6, 2016

WUNC’s My Teacher Series is exploring student-teacher relationships across North Carolina and trying to find out what it takes to make a connection in the classroom.

In Durham, North Carolina, Riverside High School junior Ray Starn sat down and interviewed his creative writing teacher Mira Rahili. Ms. Rahili taught Ray first period, freshman year. It was the opening scene to his high school career. And the personal stories Ms. Rahili shared with that class helped Ray connect, have fun, and succeed at Riverside.
