One university in Central Georgia is trying to increase the numbers of African American male teachers. It's through a program called "Call Me MISTER."
Senior Brandon Crockett is ready to make his mark on the world. The education student plans on teaching math to kids.
"The untapped potential that they have, I want to kind of tap into that potential and give them opportunities to grow academically and personally," said Crockett.
He said it's important that students are exposed to diverse teachers. "They need to know that the world of education is accessible to them. It's not some exclusive club that they can't get into."
That's why he's excited about his soon-to-be alma mater's program, Call Me MISTER.
