Most teacher performers beat the Apollo test: Not getting booed

Yesterday’s Teachers’ Night at the Apollo Theater got off to a nerve-wracking start when four of the first five acts were booed off the stage. But the majority of the 17 groups of public school teacher performers got positive marks from a rowdy crowd that included some of their students.

Here’s the Apollo’s video of the winner, Darryl Jordan, a vocal music teacher at Harlem’s Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts. Videos of the two teacher runners up are posted on the theater’s YouTube channel. The clips of some of the teachers who were booed off are cute, too.
