Tasteberry Founder, Kyra Burton, is encouraged by the strong support, “This support speaks directly to the increased popularity of video and the Internet as a means for kids to express themselves in a simple, yet powerful way. In simple terms, Tasteberry’s online platform offers a fun and easy way for students to be creative and to share their feelings on a favorite teacher. And, it’s a great way for some of our best teachers to be recognized in an authentic way from sincere students.” To spread the word, Tasteberry will be reaching out to public and private schools throughout the country. “Our system and our website possess all the tools that this requires. The beauty of this is that the video messages come from the students themselves.”
The uplifting and often funny website has been described as an assorted mix of kids sharing what they think makes a great teacher. A student who had behavior problems. A student who struggled academically to pass. A student who needed help balancing extracurricular activities with other commitments. A student who was inspired to become a teacher herself. These are just some of the students who recognized a favorite teacher and have shared on Tasteberry. Little did they know how much it would mean to the teachers to hear that they were a favorite teacher.” It’s a greater message,” said Founder, Kyra Burton, “Teachers may have a bigger impact than they realize at the time they are working with students.” Burton, who was previously a teacher in Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, decided to start Tasteberry after a previous student contacted her via email, years after being in her class, and told her that she was her favorite teacher of all time. Burton explained, “That really made me smile. It was a proud moment for me. It was totally unexpected.”
The website promises to be quite a show as viewers are immersed in endearing videos. For more information, interested parties may go to http://www.tasteberry.com to view videos or upload a video for free.
