Simon is a young boy with a head full of dreams and a heart full of lyrics he wants to rap out in to the world. Doing oral presentations for class finally gives shy Simon the opportunity to address a problem in his community. With the help of his friends and an unlikely ally, Simon finds the courage to use his magnificent voice and creativity to make a difference. The story is inspired by Dwayne Reed’s own experiences teaching 4th grade students in his hometown of Chicago.
Dwayne Reed is America’s favorite rapping teacher from Chicago. In 2016, the music video for his hit song, “Welcome to the 4th Grade,” went viral and has since been viewed nearly two million times on YouTube. When he’s not writing, rapping, or teaching, Dwayne can be found presenting at educator conferences across the U.S., or loving on his beautiful wife, Simone.
