WUNC's My Teacher Series is exploring student-teacher relationships across North Carolina and trying to find out what it takes to make a connect in the classroom.

 

Today we meet Durham School of the Arts sophomore Ira Ilagan and her biology teacher Kelley Breeze. Ira wanted to talk with Ms. Breeze about a frightening moment that happened earlier this year.
