Three millennials curious about the teaching profession set out on a road trip this summer to meet the rock stars of the education world, and it will all end at the nation’s capital next week with an event dedicated to America’s best teachers.

On Sept. 5, TEACH Roadtrip, as part of the TEACH campaign inspired by the Davis Guggenheim documentary, will celebrate the country's educators at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan will join aspiring educators Rafael Silva, Nadia Bercovich, and Grace Worm. The road-trippers will answer questions from high school and college students, teachers, and guidance counselors about their journey, where they met Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel, DonorsChoose founder Charles Best, and other influencers in the education industry. Participants will also get a sneak peek of the series documenting the trip, which will air on Pivot, TakePart’s sister network, this fall.

Watch a livestream of the Q&A below on Sept. 5, 10–11 a.m. ET. Submit your questions for Secretary Duncan and the roadtrippers to anwser during the Q&A on twitter with the hastag #TeachRoadtrip.
