I live in Washington DC. This blog is about politics, local and national, and anything else that catches my fancy. There is a lot of good work being done in blogs, I am just trying to highlight the ones which caught my eye.

    Dear D2 Route,

    My name is Jack Freiberger. I am a credentialed teacher and actor who lives in LA, but is coming to DC in July to present a one-man play about my true experiences teaching 5th grade in Los Angeles. It has been selected to be presented at the 2009 Washington Capital Fringe Festival. It’s a terrific show that has been playing for almost 2 years now. Could you post the following to your blog.

    I would love for you to come and make the show. Thanks


    To all the teachers in the DC area:

    My name is Jack Freiberger, “Mr. Fry”. I am a fully credentialed teacher and an actor in Los Angeles. I have a very popular one-man show called They Call Me Mister Fry (misterfry.com) that has been selected to be presented in the Washington Capital Fringe Festival (July 9-26th)(www.capfringe.org)

    It’s a show about the trials, tribulations and triumphs of our teaching profession. It focuses on my first year teaching 5th grade in South Los Angeles. It’s a true story and I’ve been told it has all the humor, drama and emotion that make it a classic. It focuses on my relationship with 2 challenging students and how we affected each other’s lives and it chronicles my journey through bowels of the Los Angeles Unified School District. It’s been playing for almost 2 years in LA and is on tour to Washington DC, Boulder, Indianapolis and back to LA.

    I hope you can come out and support this show and our profession. I just tell my teacher story, but I’m sure all of you have your own story in the classroom. Especially in today’s economic climate, where the first financial cuts always seem to be in education, I believe it is important to get our story out into the public to be heard by as many people as possible.

    Below are the details on how to attend the event, They Call Me Mister Fry.
