I like to see the metamorphosis of the students. When they come in knowing a little and leave knowing a lot, that’s why I do it.

The Heart of Detroit is a weekly feature by Mitch Albom that airs on Local 4 News (Detroit) at 5 p.m. and then on MitchAlbom.com. The goal is to share inspiring stories of metro Detroiters who step up to help make their community a better place to live. Viewers will follow Mitch through documentary-style videos as he profiles unsung local heroes who spend countless hours sacrificing to make others less hungry, less troubled, less impoverished or just a little happier.
In the latest episode, Albom profiles aptly named DPS teacher Cheryl Valentine – enjoy and catch the latest on the Heart of Detroit YouTube channel.
