The Classroom Close-up, NJ segment focuses on two brothers and their best friend who grew up in Camden, NJ wondering what their future would hold. All three returned to not only teach music in the public schools, but to inspire and motivate the children to achieve their dreams through hard work.
Jamal Dickerson teaches at the Creative and Performing Arts High School. His brother, Nasir, teaches at Morgan Village Middle School and their best friend, Hassan Sabree, works at Forest Hill Elementary. As friends and colleagues, they collaborate on their lesson plans to make sure students are prepared for each step in their education, from elementary to high school and beyond.
This was Classroom Close-up, NJ’s eleventh Emmy Award. The show is beginning its 18th season and is available online at New Jersey Education Association and airs on NJTV on Sundays at 6:30 a.m., 12:30 a.m., and 7:30 p.m.
NJEA Secretary-Treasurer Marie Blistan represented NJEA at the awards ceremony, alongside Wanda Swanson and Christina Farrell, the NJEA staff who produce the program. Jamal Dickerson, Nasir Dickerson, Hassan Sabree, and their families were present to see their story win the award.
